Cable Marking

Coatings Effect Pigments preview Application by Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany


Laser markings never get in the way – yet they're instantly there when you need them. Very handy if you're trying to match cables to individual devices. Or identify deep-sea cables.


Many people have never even considered using laser markings on wires and cables, but what they may not realize is that they're already in widespread use at the bottom of the deepest and darkest oceans. In more everyday places, there are so many cables that it's easy to get your wires crossed – literally. By marking cables clearly, devices and connections become safer and there's less risk of getting confused.

Laser marking makes life easier for all kinds of customers, from end users plugging in connectors to electricians installing new equipment or construction companies laying important cables. Whatever the requirement, cable markings have to be precise, clear, and strong enough to withstand even the most unforgiving of conditions and environments.


Laser marking offers the perfect method for identifying cables. Our Iriotec® 8000 laser pigments allow for easy and permanent high-contrast markings.
