CerMark LMM 6060 production to end
CerMark will be discontinuing the production of LMM 6060 laser marking material at some point in the spring of 2019.
LMM 6060 was created as a water based nonflammable version of black laser marking material. This coating was made to would allow for expedited shipping and less regulated shipping for international customers.
Approximately half of CerMark sales are outside of the US. Some European countries have recently elected to limit liquids that contain Cobalt as potentially hazardous. As CerMark LMM 6060 contains small amounts of cobalt it is affected by these new regulations which negates the benefit of having a nonflammable solution.
CerMark is has been developing a new marking material that will work on a very wide range of materials including most metals, glass, stone and others. It is hoped that this new material will be available around second quarter 2019.
