* Indoor Engraving Materials

Indoor Plastics

Gravoply Ultra
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.

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.

Gravoply 3C
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.

GravoTac
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.

Metallex
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.
 
Stick-A-Lase
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.

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

Indoor Metals

Gravobrass
Now available for a variety of applications. Premium Gravobrass has a thin protective lacquer coating to protect the surface from oxidizing over time, but is only suitable for indoor environments. Gravobrass Exterior is a solid raw brass typically used for office building exteriors, commonly called "Doctor Plates". If you do not want the appearance of aging or oxidizing brass, it will be required to coat the final engraved (and likely paint-filled) product with an exterior-grade clear lacquer before or soon after mounting.

Gravostral
While the cap is metal, the core is Phenolic. Perfect for upscale interior metal signage. And because the .010" aluminum caps cover a black Phenolic core, you will never need to paint fill this metal product after engraving. This product can save you time and money.

Gravoxal Anodized Aluminum
The anodization colors the actual metal to a depth of .001" to .002" and is typically more durable than a paint that is applied to the surface of the metal. For this reason, anodized aluminum is often used for industrial applications requiring a durable surface finish. While anodized aluminum can be engraved with a laser engraver, an engraved contrast will only be realized with gold, black, or colored aluminum. The silver version has a clear anodization.

Alumizal
This special line of gold anodized aluminum returns black characters when lasered with any standard CO2 laser engraver. No oxidation or paint fill needed – and it only requires 5-10 watts of power! Now available in silver or gold, and suitable for most outdoor environments. May require a clear lacquer coat after engraving for harsh outdoor environments.

Colored Aluminium
This aluminum has been painted with a polyester-based paint. The process is very economical and is historically one of the preferred choices for economical trophy plates. Since top coating of colored aluminum is painted with a polyester-based paint, the surface is sublimation receptive for dye-sublimination transfers.

Colored Steel
Colored Steel is actually a brass plated steel product. Designed for use with a laser machine, this product returns brilliant gold lettering when engraved with a laser engraver. And the clear layer of lacquer under the polyester-based topcoat of paint protects the brass from oxidizing for years to come. The great appearance and low price have made Colored Steel a recent favorite of trophy shops using laser engravers.

Marbled Steel
Built just like our Colored Steel, the final layer of paint on marbled steel is a faux marble pattern. All the other great properties of Colored Steel remain the same on this version of Colored Steel.

* Outdoor Engraving Materials

Outdoor Plastics

Gravoply Ultra
Our most versatile rotary and laser engravable material yet, this micro-cap engraving materials allows fine, detailed engraving similar to a foil cap product (like Gravoply™ 2). The non-foil solid plastic cap also offers more overall durability - a trait traditionally limited to the standard .010" laminated caps (like Gravoply™ 1). This cap is so durable, it can be used indoors or outdoors. Even better, this fully UV stable 2-Ply product is both a rotary and laser engravable material.

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 Plex
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.

Gravofoil
Sold in sheet form, this .008" thick adhesive backed engraving materials 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.

GravoTac Exterior
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.

Vinyl
For use on rigid or flexible signage to provide lettering or graphics. Typically cut with a vinyl plotter machine, this single-ply adhesive backed material is perfect for most any outdoor application. Available in 3.2 mil thick Calendered Vinyl or 5.5 mil thick Reflective vinyl. Sold in full rolls only.

Premium Gravobrass has a thin protective lacquer coating to protect the surface from oxidizing over time, but is only suitable for indoor environments.
