A beautiful Engraving on metal It's always a great effect. But also associated with restrictions. For the metal engraving with the Marksolid Spray, a few rules must be observed:

  1. Focus: The energy from the laser head activates the spray so that the order can take place on the material. The focus must therefore fit (in contrast to other materials). If it does not fit, too little energy comes to the material.
  2. Spray quantity: Much helps, much does not apply to the Marksolid Spray: a super thin layer is absolutely sufficient for the metal engraving. Please keep enough distance from the material and the best way to spray the spray on the area to be serious in a push. Otherwise, the engraving does not work as desired and the spray flops.
