PRESS RELEASE

DuraBlack, a new CO2 laser markable aluminum, meets the performance requirements of MIL-STD-130 and MIL-DTL-15024F for resistance to abrasion, high-temperature, weather, salt-spray and fluid exposure. The tests, which compare DuraBlack to black anodized aluminum, laser-markable acrylics and photosensitive anodized aluminum (Metalphoto®), simulate outdoor, marine, abrasive, fluid/chemical and high-temperature operating environments. While Metalphoto was found to be the most durable material overall; a new laser markable metal substrate – DuraBlack – exhibited environmental performance that surpassed other substrates including black anodized aluminum and laser markable acrylics.
