Innovative Plastics Inc.
IPI is a leading manufacturer of engravable laminates for laser engraving and rotary engraving systems. After years of research and development, IPI introduced its first laser engraving series, LASERABLES, in 1994. Since then, IPI has continued to develop new series to give today’s laser engraver not only the largest, most versatile selection available, but also one that outperforms all others no matter what the need. IPI engravable laminates offers a wide variety of patterns and colours from the industrial white & black, wood grains, speckled sands, granites to classic marble. A wide range of metallic looks with advanced design and burst of brilliance, unique reverse engraveable surfaces for exciting dimensional appearances, and a colour environment that includes soft delicate pastels, elegant European hues, and a rich, vivid primary spectrum.
For laser and engraved plates and labels. With a durable micro-surface and only 0.38mm thickness, this adhesive backed substrate has exceptional durability and integrity for projects on curved or flat surfaces, trophies, plaques, ID plates/labels, signage and more. TrophyFlex also performs beautifully with UV-LED printed label applications.
Photo quality images on real metal without etching, engraving or adding chemicals.
A specialised aluminium that may be imaged or marked using a CO2 laser.
Military Tough, Industrial Strong, Markable with any CO2 Laser.
The only laser markable metal certified for outdoor usage that does not require a chemical pre-treatment or protective topcoat.
The Saddle Collection laserable leather-like sheet material can be used to create scrapbooks, bags, gloves, wallets and essentially any project that is presented. The versatility and durability of this product allows for the finished result to be stunning and impressive. Take personalization to a new level with precise lasering accuracy and further develop your offering to end users across all sectors.
Laser marking materials that let you do more with your laser. We provide special coatings you can use with a CO2 or Fiber laser to make high contrast permanent marks on metals.
These coatings when used with a laser system create a permanent bond to an item. This process has been tested and approved by the US Military, NASA, medical device makers and many others. This patented laser bonding process has been in use by many companies since the late 1990s.
The coating is available in a paste, spray can or tape.
What materials can be processed with a laser?
The ULS Materials Library is the world’s premier source for information on laser material processing. It provides information on the types of materials that can be laser processed and the processes (laser cutting, engraving and marking) that are possible with a given material. Click the image to view.
