Greetings:

I am SO excited to share our newest product with you. We demo'ed it in Las Vegas and it won Best New Technology Award from the ARA! Woo-hoo! It is called LiquaMASK and you need to check out this product!

Laser Spotlight

Each month we showcase an item, product or skill from LaserU. We give a summary of the item and provide links for more information. This month we will look at LiquaMASK. This comes from our Project Center titled - LiquaMASK.

Here are a few quick tips & images, but please see the Project Center for more detail & information.

Advantages:

    • Apply the LiquaMASK weeks ahead of time
    • Never damages the substrate with adhesive residue
    • No changes to speed or power settings
    • No lifting or curling
    • No air pockets
    • Water soluble – washes right off fingers & brushes
    • Works on any shape surface since it is brushed on (i.e. curved surfaces)
    • Very little waste as it is applied exactly where needed
    • Weeding out the extra LiquaMASK from the insides of letter is easier than other masking materials.
    • No adhesive residue due to melting from the heat of the laser like other products that have an adhesive backing.
    • When using color fill it won’t accidently seep underneath the material since LiquaMASK does not allow gaps between it and the substrate.
    • LiquaMASK can be used on items that will receive light sandblasting.
    • Cost effective – about a penny per square inch!
