Westmoreland, NH - Polyonics' family of laser-markable label materials represents the next generation of label technology for high-temperature and harsh-environment automotive ID and tracking applications. They include high-temperature polyimide films; durable cross-linked polymer coatings; low-surface-energy (LSE), pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA); and liners for ease of handling and die cutting. The LML materials can be easily ablated by most low-power CO2, YAG, fiber diode, UV, and Vanadate lasers, with the aggressive PSAs adhering to a wide variety of surfaces, including metals, plastics, ceramics, and resins.

Polyonics' polyimide LML products provide a higher temperature and more flexible alternative to the polyester (PET) and acrylic LML products currently used in automotive LML applications today. Polyimide is the number-one choice for label applications involving exposure to high temperatures and harsh chemicals, allowing the company's LML products to provide a higher degree of dimensional stability and greater resistances to harsh chemicals than polyester (PET) and acrylic LML materials. In addition, the LML materials do not exhibit the same brittleness associated with acrylic LML materials.

Polyonics manufactures high-performance polymeric materials for harsh environments. These include printable and laser-markable label materials, single- and double-coated engineered tapes, and flexible substrates with highly reflective and printable top coats. The company's materials are used by OEMS and specialty die-cut converters worldwide. The ultra-thin polyimide, polyester, and aluminum materials are designed expressly for high temperatures and harsh environments, plus provide flame-retardant and static dissipative performances for electronics, automobile, aerospace, and medical components.
