OVERVIEW

FiberGrave® sheet plastic is a lightweight, single-ply acrylic sheet that has been specially engineered to make contrasting marks with a Fiber or YAG laser.

It’s easier to handle and fabricate compared to aluminum or stainless steel sheet stock, and is UV-stable for exterior applications such as industrial tags, labels, and identification plates.

What is the difference between fiber/YAG and CO2 Lasers?
With CO2 lasers, the beam is based on a gas mixture with the optical path being directed by a series of mirrors while the YAG laser beam is transmitted though fiber optics.

The majority of YAG lasers are used in industrial applications for high volume marking of products like ballpoint pens. Unlike a CO2 laser, a YAG laser is generally more compatible with materials such as chrome, brass, etc. Due to its small wavelength, a YAG laser can mark many different types of metal, and a few plastics, but its effectiveness on standard CO2-laserable products (wood, rubber, acrylic, etc) is almost non-existent. FiberGrave™ has been engineered and manufactured specifically for use with Fiber/YAG & Galvo lasers.

  • Can be vector cut with a standard CO2 laser to create custom shapes
  • Available with or without adhesive backing
  • Chemical resistant
  • Available in .020" or .040" thickness

FiberGrave® will not engrave correctly or yield a contrasting mark unless it is fabricated using a Fiber or YAG laser.

Fiber lasers use an optical fiber cable made of silica glass for laser etching.

YAG (yttrium aluminum garnet) laser uses a crystalline rod made of earth metals as an electron source for laser etching.
