CLEVELAND - DataLase, originator of the award-winning DataLase® process, has recently completed a distribution agreement for the United States, Canada and Mexico with Ferro Corporation, a leading global supplier of technology-based performance materials. This collaboration will see the two companies working together to develop a special laser-markable aerosol containing the DataLase® pigment for applying variable information onto metal or painted metal parts.

The new spray containing the DataLase pigment will be applied onto metal parts using an aerosol, and once exposed to a portable low-power CO2 DataLase-approved laser, it will undergo a chemical reaction in the pigment, turning it from white to black.
