Paints & foils
Lacquer abrasion, carbonizing, surface removal and cutting
Using specific parametrization, the laser is able to precisely remove and carbonize extremely thin paint layers from a wide variety of different materials. The best known example for selective lacquer abrasion from switches and buttons in the automotive industry is the night/day design.
Markable laser foils can be used for creating robust markings for heavy wear. This is possible due to an extremely wear-resistant acrylate coating, which is available in various contrasting colors. This special material is resistant against wear, weather and chemicals. Areas of application for laser foils are the marking of engines, machines or equipment. Laser foils are available both unicolored and multi-colored and can be cut easily and precisely into any desired shape using the laser.
