LaserTile is a specially manufactured ceramic tile that features a laser sensitive glaze. Using a specially developed process we call laser glaze, a high resolution photo-thermal reaction is created that embeds a permanent image onto the tile. The laser sensitive coating is designed to turn black in color when engraved with a laser. The glaze is never removed during the engraving process so the tile remains smooth on top and keeps its durability characteristics. LaserTile is highly sensitive to laser energy and will create fine details for small text or photographs. Large fill areas also engrave well.
Using Laser Tile
Using LaserTile is clean and simple. Take care to have exact focus and position of the tile on the engraving table. Print the engraving job to the laser in the usual manner and start the engraving process on the laser. Use the recommended power and speed settings as a starting point. If the engraving appears too dark reduce the power or increase the speed. If the engraving is too light, increase the power or reduce the speed.
