Ampacet expands a range of masterbatches with technology for flexible applications

Ampacet introduces the Laser MarkFlexâ„¢ Portfolio of masterbatches is designed for high definition laser marking on flexible film using ND:YAG technology.

The antimony-free product range consists of LaserMarkFlex1081, formulated for grey/dark grey marking and LaserMarkFlex 1135, for lighter grey marking with broader food approval status (EC and FDA).

LaserMarkFlex, which is fully compliant with circular economy design guidelines, enables monochrome permanent and anti-counterfeit marking and provides aa robust, waterproof, lightfast and chemical and abrasion-resistant surface. Because it is an ink-free technology, no surface pre-tretment is required, saving drying time and energy. LaserMarkFlex features excellent flexibility and allows easy personalization and serialization, making it ideal for small batch sizes and quick-change layouts. 

LaserMarkFlex masterbatches, suitable for use in monolayer as well as coextruded film structures, can be used to print logos, barcodes, expiration or best-before dates and serial numbers on labels and packaging.
