These plates are the only laser markable metal certified for outdoor usage that do not require a chemical pre-treatment or protective topcoat.
DuraBlack® is CO2 laser markable aluminum for durable, on-demand marking for harsh operating environments. In side-by-side tests, DuraBlack outperforms black anodized aluminum and laser markable acrylic tape in select applications. DuraBlack is resistant to sunlight (UV-radiation), abrasion, high-temperatures, salt-spray and chemical exposure. Because of its ability to perform across a range of challenging environments, DuraBlack meets several government, industrial and military specifications including MIL-STD 130N, A-A-50271 (≈MIL-P-514D) and MIL-STD-15024F, Type L.
Composed of a multi-level coating, DuraBlack can be attached to either curved or flat surfaces with adhesive, rivets or screws. We can help you produce a durable, high-resolution barcode or human-readable image.
