Need help


#1

I am a fairly new GF owner. I have tried with no luck etching on metal. Is this possible?


#2

No. You can’t directly etch on metal. Aluminum needs to be anodized or painted. You can use Cermark or some type of metal marking solution.

titanium seems to be the exception.


#3

Good to know. Thanks for the quick reply.


#4

It has been reported you can etch stainless steel to some extent. That is because it has a very poor thermal conductivity compared to other common metals. IIRC about 17W/m K where copper is 400, Aluminium 200 and glass 1, plastic 0.2.
