The rise of laser-markable masterbatches: A compelling labelling solution


From consumer goods to car parts, plastic products across segments need to be labeled for a variety of reasons. From branding to critical safety information, effective labeling of plastics ensures clarity and consumer trust.

Arising from the necessity for clear and efficient labeling, laser-markable masterbatches have emerged as a game-changing technology. Laser marking offers significant advantages over conventional labeling methods, including:

  • High-quality marks: Laser marks created with these masterbatches are sharp, clear and permanent, with resistance to fading, scratching and chemicals.
  • Versatility: Laser-markable masterbatches can be used on a wide variety of plastics, including dark-colored plastics.
  • Speed: Laser marking provides a faster application with a high degree of customization, making it ideal for product identification, tracking and decoration.
  • Protection against counterfeiting: Laser marking is permanent, making it difficult to replicate intricate logos and codes. Thus, tampering with authentic goods becomes almost impossible.
  • Environmentally friendly: Laser marking does not generate any harmful fumes or waste products.
