Marking rubber wiper blades

November 2005
Industrial Laser Solutions;Nov2005, Vol. 20 Issue 11, p4
The article focuses on different kinds of rubber and rubber markings. The rubber can be marked either by engraving or by discoloration depending on the power density applied to the substrate. The silicone rubber wiper material exhibits some contrast due to a heat-induced color change. Ethylene-propylene rubbers produce a metallic looking contrasting mark while neoprene and butyl rubber provide engraved marks.
