LMM-6000 Aerosol Can Instructions
LMM-6000 is our laser marking material for metals, ready to use in a can. Ethanol-based, allowing for a faster drying time and can be used on a variety of bare metal substrates including stainless steel, brass, aluminium, titanium, tin, copper, nickel and many more. If the metal has a lacquered coating, the LMM-6000 marking material will not work.
INSTRUCTIONS: Shake can well before using. Allow the agitator ball to rattle for at least 2 minutes. For best results, use when can is between 20 to 32 degrees Celsius.
Applying: Clean the surface of the metal so it is free of any type of lubricants or oils.
Hold can approximately 20 to 30 cm from substrate to be sprayed. Depress valve fully during spray. Apply a thin coat of LMM-6000 to the metal, try to apply an even covering. Try to cover the area to be marked with a light spray, using two passes. If the material is applied too thick, it will require more power to make
the mark. It is important that LMM-6000 is applied with an even and thin coat. Applying LMM-6000 may require a little practice to get the right coverage. After use, the can nozzle should be cleaned by inverting the can and spraying until mist becomes clear. Any excess material on the nozzle should be cleaned off with water. Drying: It is important that the LMM-6000 is allowed to dry thoroughly. It can air dry in about 2 minutes. This process can be sped up by using a drying
oven, hair dryer or a heat lamp.
Marking On Stainless Steel: This step may require some trial and error to optimize your laser with a particular substrate. Keep in mind that all lasers react
differently depending on the substrate, the type of laser, the lasers' power, dot size and other factors :
Marking On Aluminium & Brass: Softer metals require more power or slower speeds to obtain a permanent mark. We recommend at least a 50-watt C02
laser for such metals.
Clean up: Wash with water or a wet towel. After use, the can nozzle should be cleaned by inverting the can and spraying until mist becomes clear. Any excess material on the nozzle should cleaned off with water. Nozzle can be removed and soaked in warm water if spraying difficulty is encountered.
