Laser-markable Celanex(reg) PBT thermoplastic polyester generates bold, permanent characters and graphics without printing. The high-resolution marking technology enables automotive and other designers to decorate and identify parts permanently. The laser-markable PBTs are available in three grades, and combine the mechanical properties of conventional Celanex polyesters with laser markability. The polyesters can tolerate up to 25% regrind without loss of mechanical properties or marking quality.
