A high resolution material, flexible and laserable Especially developed for your indoor applications on curved surfaces, Flexilase is ideal for identification labels, trophy plates, bar codes,... This adhesive-backed acrylic material offers excellent quality results on engraving and cutting, both with rotary and laser marking. A large range of colours including metallics is available. Discover this fine and flexible material of outstanding quality.

Clear, cast acrylic available in several thicknesses. Offers a perfectly polished edge when cut with a CO2 laser. Ideal for trophies and professional plates. Can be surface and subsurface engraved. Add a coloured plate to the back of your engraving to achieve a colour contrast.

Gravoply Laser
An indoor laserable product at a lower price. Construction of material is an acrylic core and a foil cap designed for detailed engraving. This product is offered in a wide range of colors which are laser and rotary engravable. Excellent for interior signage.

Gravoply Ultra
Our most versatile engraving material yet. This micro-cap engraving material allows fine detailed engraving similar to a foil cap product (like Gravoply™ 2), but the non-foil solid plastic cap offers more overall durability - a trait traditionally limited to the standard .010" laminated caps(like Gravoply™ 1). This cap is so durable that it can be used indoors or outdoors. Even better, this fully UV stable 2-Ply product can be engraved with a rotary engraver or a laser engraver. And now this product is available in a variety of overall thickness (.020", 1/16", 3/32") and offers many matte and satin surface finishes from which to choose. Reduce your overall inventory value by stocking just one product line for all your 2-Ply needs.

Gravolase Metallics
Similar in appearance to the Metallex™ product line, Gravolase Metallics engraving material uses many of the same foil cap layers. But Gravolase Metallics uses a core of laserable solid DR plastic, instead of ABS plastic. DR is a special formulation of a modified acrylic known best for its laserability. Available in either a flexible .020" or a sturdy 1/16" overall thickness.

Gravoply 1
Still our most popular engraving material, Gravoply™ 1 is constructed with a standard .010" cap layer and perfect for most any indoor application. Coming standard with a satin surface finish, Gravoply™ 1 now has many matte and textured color options available as well.

Gravoply 2
The micro thin .001" foil cap of Gravoply™ 2 allows for very fine detailed engraving. While this engraving material is perfect for small text and/or intricate logos required of many indoor applications, the thicker cap of Gravoply™ 1 may be better for many industrial applications where long-term cap durability may be put to the test. Gravoply™ 2 comes standard with a matte surface finish, but we now have Gravoply™ 2 Gloss available, which has a glossy clear protective cap layer.

3-Ply engraving materials typically have a cap on either side of the core, so you can engrave on either side of the material. However, this 3-Ply material is constructed with 3 layers to be forward engraved from one side. The unique composition allows you to create a 3color interior sign with your engraver. Engrave to .002" to expose the first core, and to .012" to expose the second core.

A growing favorite for indoor signage, the design of Gravo-Tac provides the core (substrate) and cap (profile) layers separately. By outlining the desired images or text in the adhesive backed profile layer, and peeling away the excess material, Gravo-Tac creates raised letter signage capable of complying with all ADA raised-letter regulations. The raised letter process is also a great way to create multi-colored signage with your engraving machine.

It's the plastic that looks like metal. Save weight and expense for all your indoor metallic applications! Most popular for creating badges. Available in a variety of colors and 3 surface styles: The original Metallex™ is constructed with a laminated metallic foil cap. Metallex™ 2 has a special surface treatment to add scratch resistance to the beautiful yet sensitive metallic foil cap. And Metallex™ Gloss has an added glossy clear protective cap layer over the metallic foil – designed for the ultimate in scratch resistance.

Available in black/white or silver/black, this .004" thick, adhesive backed, laserable engraving material is perfect for bar-codes, cylindrical labeling, ID plates or trophy plates. Sold in convenient 4.75" x 32" rolls.

This natural rubber product, sold in small A4 size sheets is perfect for creating high quality rubber stamps with your laser machine.

Phenolic is a very rigid fibrous engraving material that can be very susceptible to humidity, but is usually chosen for its non-flammable fire retardant qualities.

Gravoglas 1
This acrylic 2-Ply is designed exclusively for sub-surface engraving, and is suitable for outdoor applications. Different from Gravoglas™ 2-Plex, Gravoglas™ 1 has a thin micro-cap on a more rigid clear solid acrylic core. The thin cap offers fine detailed engraving – and it is laserable, too!

Gravoglas 2
Designed with the same .010" cap thickness as our standard indoor plastic Gravoply™ 1, the UV stability of Gravoglas™ 2-Plex makes it perfect for all outdoor applications. Available in matte, glossy, or textured surface finishes for surface or subsurface engraving.

Sold in sheet form, this .008" thick adhesive backed engraving material is only for use with a rotary engraver. It creates an industrial strength permanently engraved sticker. Its very malleable PVC construction allows it to conform to many product applications.

Virtually identical in appearance to our standard Gravo-Tac™, the UV stability of Gravo-Tac™ Exterior means you now have a raised letter signage solution for all your outdoor applications.

Used most often in the engraving industry as a back-plate to add overall thickness to a thinner (and typically more expensive) product. For wall mounting, this thickness adds to the perceived value and the aesthetic appearance.
