Non-sooting white laser markable label
Compatible with auto-dispensing applications
Brady B-734 matte white laser markable polyimide material is a non-sooting option ideal for difficult-to-survive conditions, including high-temperature reflow steps for surface-mount technology and washing steps that limit the use of traditional thermal heat transfer print. our no-soot option that can withstand high temperatures, harsh chemicals and environment production processes. Our laser markable labels, which includes B-734, are designed to withstand high temperatures, harsh chemicals and environment production processes making them the most durable, permanent label identification in the entire Brady portfolio.
Key performance attributes:
Tested using Taber Abraser equipment with CS-10 grinding wheels and weighted arms. No effect to label or printed image after 100 cycles.
