Laser Marking with Thermark Application – Aston Martin

The laser marking of a foot plate was processed as follows. First of all, the aluminium is processed using a surface additive, in order to produce a high contrast from the laser marking. The thermark coating is applied, and then the marking is processed. Where the laser contacts the thermark coating, the interactions leaves a permanent mark on the material. The remaining thermark can then simply be washed away.

Laser Marking With Thermark Aston Martin Foot Plate

Whilst this process was undertaken using Nd:YAG, CO2 laser marking can also be used on aluminium. As you can see from the image, the end result is of  a very high quality. A foot plate in a car, will of course, be subject to a high degree of wear and tear, so the durability of the marking is essential. This permanent process means there is no wear and tear.

We were also delighted to provide our services to such a prestigious British brand and one that purveys such high quality.
