I got Cermark spray but I can’t get the marking to stay on…
Cermark makes a couple of sprays. Which one do you have and what are you spraying it on?
From my limited experience : spray thin but enough for full coverage and then hit it hard with the laser.
I use brilliance ink from
I use a thin coat as [markevans36301] says, full power and 1000 speed
with good results on stainless steel. I have not tried regular steel yet will do it this weekend
Don’t have a lot of experience with laser marking sprays but seems to me the speed is way too fast. The last time I used a Cermark equivalent I used 100% power and 140 speed.
Oops. Thought you were the original poster. Either way, hot and slow.
You are right! i was looking at another setting
500 speed and full power is what i used
still faster that your settings but it works good on stainless
I made a set of MedicAlert dog tags with Brilliance. Stainless steel tags, 1000/Full. Text came out beautiful and crisp, but the medical logo turned out spotty. I’m not sure whether that was the settings, or if I used too much spray or too little.
I’ll run more tests this weekend.
Older link but the results are wicked kewl
I would suggest to use scrap similar metals and do test prints. Easy to use, spray, let dry, laser and rinse with water.
