CerMark Laser Marking of Stainless Steel Tags for the Highway Industry

A transportation industry customer approached us to laser mark their stainless steel tags. The 3" wide and 1.5" tall tags, which are used on hydro poles on Toronto's 407 highway, are marked using CerMark™ which creates permanent black lasered text on the tag's stainless steel. The CerMark™ is sprayed on using an aerosol can prior to the actual marking, which is done with a Co2 laser. This customer's orders are ongoing and are bought in batches of 100 pieces. We engrave these prepaid blanks and our customer receives partial shipments as needed. To make sure the tags can withstand the harsh weather in Canada, we consulted the testing done by the CerMark™ manufacturer which includes immersing the tags in various test solutions (organic solvents, acids, bases, boiling H2O, LN2 and hot flame) and we conduct internal employee quality checks before shipping.
