New CerMark Ultra
New CerMark Ultra
CerMark Ultrais specifically formulated to laser mark on most laser mark able substrates, such as metals, glass, ceramics (glazed or unglazed), brick (glazes & unglazed), slate and more, just using one CerMark product. This new product is by far superior to existing product lines,formulated to achieve the best results in the industry.
CerMark Ultrais ethanol based which allows for a fast drying time.
Using CerMark Ultra: ready to use in aerosol can form. Important; Shake can well before using; Allow the agitator ball to rattle for at least 2 minutes. Failure to shake thoroughly can result in the failure of the aerosol system. For best results, use when aerosol is between 70 and 90 degrees F:
The following laser setting are to be considered starting points, more test marks may be necessary to optimize performance, Softer Metals require more power or slower speeds to obtain a permanent mark. We recommend at least a 50 Watt CO2 laser for such metals.

Marking on Brass and Aluminum: To obtain a permanent mark on Softer Metals require more power or slower speeds. We recommend at least 50 Watt CO2 laser for such metals: (Gold, Silver, and Platinum)
- Scrub test marks with 3M Scotch-Brite for verifying durability/Medium Duty Scrub Pad.
- Based on these results choose the best setting for your application.
Laser marking Metals
Applying: Clean the surface of the metal so that it is free of any type of lubricants or oils. Hold can approximately 8-12 inches from substrate to be sprayed. Depress valve fully during spray. Apply a thin coat of CerMark ULTRA to the metal, apply an even coating. Try to cover the area to be marked with a light spray, using two passes. For high quality results it’s important for the CerMark ULTRA to be applied evenly across the marking area. Applying CerMark ULTRA may require practice to achieve the right coverage. After use, the can nozzle should be cleaned to eliminate a clogged nozzle. Any excess material on the nozzle should be cleaned off with water. We recommend that all CerMark ULTRA be applied in a well-ventilated area or spray booth designed to pull air away from user.
Drying: It is important that the CerMark ULTRA is allowed to dry thoroughly. It will air dry in about 2 minutes. This process can be sped up by using a heat gun or fan.
Laser marking Non-Metals: CerMark ULTRA can be used on a variety of materials such as glass, ceramic, tile, brick, dinnerware, mugs, stone, slate and porcelains. Results: A high contrast, smoother, blacker mark. Thinning: 1:1 ration by volume: 1 part ULTRA – 1 part ethanol. Apply with a Preval Spray Applicator.
The above step may require some trial and error to optimize your laser with a particular substrate. Keep in mind that all lasers react differently depending on the substrate, the type of laser, the laser’s power, dot size, and other factors: Contact/ LaserSketch, email@example.com, for customer support and service.
