Type 2 – Dark Laser Engrave

Also sometimes referred to as Dark Etch, Laser Engrave

Frequently used on uncoated promotional products and other metal components when a non-glossy, textured dark etched surface is desired. A small amount of material is vaporized by the laser, and the etch may feel slightly raised to the touch as well as textured. There is no measurable depth to this type of etch, but peak penetrations will range from a few ten thousands to a few thousands of an inch.
