DuraBlack™ is laser markable aluminum for durable, on-demand marking for harsh operating environments. Inside-by-side tests, DuraBlack outperforms black anodized aluminum and laser markable acrylic tape in select applications. DuraBlack™ is resistant to sunlight (UV-radiation), abrasion, high-temperatures, salt-spray and chemical exposure. Because of its ability to perform across a range of challenging environments, DuraBlack™ meets several government, industrial and military specifications including MIL-STD 130N, A-A-50271(MIL-P-514D) and MIL-STD-15024F, Type L.
Composed of a multi-level coating available upon 0.005" or 0.020" thick aluminum, DuraBlack can be attached to either curved or flat surfaces with adhesive, rivets or screws. It is imaged with any CO2 marking laser to produce a durable, high-resolution barcode or human-readable image.
