Additional Information

LaserLIGHTS are a 4 mil (.004”) two-ply laser etchable and mechanically engravable plastic material with 1 mil (.001”) acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive. They are completely flexible yet extremely durable, with excellent exterior properties and resistance to water, solvents, abrasion, and extreme temperatures. LaserLIGHTS can also be embossed, ink and thermal printed, sandblasted and cut with a plotter.

LaserLIGHTS adhesive information:
LaserLIGHTS are backed with a 1 mil (.001"), acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive designed for industrial applications. The adhesive has excellent exterior properties and resistance to water, solvents and extreme temperatures. It bonds extremely well to metals, plastics, rubbers and foams. The adhesive has good initial tack, and fully sets up over 72 hours.

Applications
Typical applications include: nameplates, electronics, appliances, recreational vehicles, computers, packaging, aviation and automotive.

LaserLIGHTS Durability and Weatherability information:
LaserLIGHTS surface durability is about twelve times greater than that of a conventional microsurfaced engraving plastic. On an RCA Taber Abrader CS17 set at 500 gm, there was no wear through to the substrate after a minimum of 70 cycles.

LaserLIGHTS and their adhesive withstand high temperatures, up to 250˚F (121˚C) for intermittent and 200˚F (93˚C) for continuous use. In specific applications they have been successful at considerably higher temperatures.

RoHS 2, Directive 2011/65/EC:
These products do not contain any intentionally added lead, mercury, cadmium and hexavalent chromium. If these are detected they result from their presence as trace impurities in the raw materials used to manufacture the product. Analysis of these and/or similar products has shown that, if detected, these fall well below the limitations set by the above Directive in that maximum concentration up to 0.1% by weight of lead, mercury, and hexavalent chromium and 0.01% by weight of cadmium. These products do not contain any polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBBE).
