The only laser markable metal certified for outdoor use

DuraBlack aluminum is a real metal ready for marking with Co2 laser,  with no additional treatment required.

DuraBlack  is the first Co2 laser engraved  aluminum product that can last 8 to 10 years in a variety of challenging  military, industrial and outdoor environments without  top protection

Protect your investment in unique identification or marking items  with durable labels !


DuraBlack is made  of a multi-level coating on an aluminum base, including  an abrasion-resistant top layer reducing  the need to apply a secondary protective topcoat.

The Co2 laser beam marks the black layer, producing  an aluminum image on matte black background. Highly contrasted, resulting marking is dense and readable for use in barcodes and UIDs.

In tests made by independent laboratories,  DuraBlack outperforms black anodized aluminum and laser markable acrylic materials.

It is the ideal material for durable signage in  harsh condition environments.


Available as standard with 3M 350 high performance adhesive, it can also be fixed with rivets or screws.

Also available in pre-cut labels, it is just  necessary to mark and apply.

DuraBlack complies with  the toughest requirements. It is the only laser-markable metal to meet A-A-50271 and MIL-STD-15024G, Type L military specifications.

Several tests have been carried out by independent laboratories and are available on request.
