Iriotec® 8835 is Laser-sensitive pigments for use in plastic-molded and powder-coated products including polyolefins, ABS, PVC, nylon and PC. These additives are incorporated into polymer resins and coatings, changing color or reflectivity when impacted with a specific wavelength of laser light.

The laser can then be used to create graphics, reference numbers, shading, or other visual effects that are permanently embedded in the part.
