Warning this coating is being phased out and we have very little inventory left.
Originally recommended for marking glass and ceramic, LMC12 is now recommended for creating black marks on nylon, PVC, polyethylene, polyurethane, polycarbonate, and other thermo-plastics. LMC12 dries quickly as a black powder coat and is easy to wash after marking. The coat can be smudged or wiped off prior to laser marking, however, so LMC12 should be marked shortly after application. Certain plastic substrates may require washing with soap to remove the excess ink after laser marking.
LMC12 makes great marks on the thermo-plastics listed below. This list is not exhaustive, however, so if your substrate does not appear on the list, this does not mean LMC12 will not mark it.
LMC12 will work with either CO2 or solid state lasers, but it is easier to achieve a high quality mark on plastic with a CO2 laser.
