Laser Engraved Stainless Steel Tags can be produced by utilizing two different methods. Fiber laser engraving or CO2 laser engraving. We engrave our stainless steel tags with a CO2 laser and utilize a marking compound called CerMark. This works by heating the compound which causes it to turn black and soak into the stainless steel. The result is a crisp black engraving that will survive abrasion, salt water spray, lubricants, heat and chemical exposure. Engraving tags using a fiber laser does not require a compound as it draws the carbon in the steel to the surface to mark it. However, Fiber engravings tend to be dull with minimal contrast and will stand out less in real world environments where dirt, debris and poor lighting can all be factors.
