LMM 6018 must adhere well to the substrate to ensure a consistent mark.
Removal Methods Remove tape by peeling from surface. Some burned paper residue may need to be wiped away. A cloth can be used with water or ethanol. Some cut out portions of tape may also need weeding, depending on the mark.
Marking Notes Rough or uneven substrates such as porous non-glazed ceramics or bricks will also produce marks of lower resolution due to the roughness of the material. We recommend that the marking be done in a with air assist and exhaust system. Smoke and flame will be created during laser marking from the paper backing burning.
Marking will require some trial and error to optimize specific settings for your laser with a particular substrate.
