HELPFUL MARKING TIPS SERIES: High Contrast Marking on Stainless Steel using Chemical Etching

High Contrast Marking on Stainless Steel using Chemical Etching

One of the most common materials to Electro-Chemically Etch is Stainless Steels. It’s used for so many products from Medial Appliances and Food Preparation Equipment to Pressure Vessels and Nuclear Hardware etc.
One of the things we are asked for most often is how to create a high contrast BLACK permanent image on Stainless. Well for a very long time it’s been quite easy to get a good high contrast marking on Stainless steel and there are many Electrolytic Solutions that can help you obtain these results. However, Millennium Signatures X4R-428 Electrolyte Solution is unique in this area. Unlike the brown coloured markings, you tend to get with other formulations, our X4R-428 Electrolyte delivers a Black result that has definitely impressed those who have long been searching for a better result in this area. This Electrolyte can be used with any of our Power Units or Electro-Chemical Marking Kits.
Commonly sold in 1-Litre Bottles
Also available in 5-Lite Containers.

CUSTOM CUT STENCILS

Custom Cut Stencils Promo

MULTI-PURPOSE CUSTOM CUT STENCILS

Regardless what type of stencil you require, Millennium Signatures can produce them quickly and cost-effectively! Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc. specializes in helping manufacturers identify their products using various marking methods including Laser Engraving, Dot Peen Stamping, Electro-Chemical Etching and so much more. We even Custom Formulate Inks, Paints and Solvents for a wide range of part marking applications.

One of our popular products is our CUSTOM CUT STENCILS. These stencils can be cut from a wide range of materials including, but not limited to Cold Rolled Steel, Stainless Steel, Brass, Copper, Acrylic, Mylar and Oil Board. These stencils get used in a variety of ways. On of the most common uses is for marking Shipping Crates. We also produce many Copper Stencils which are soft and wrap easily around shafts or cylinders, often used in the Aerospace and Nuclear Industries for identifying everything from Landing Gear components to various struts and controls. Soft and playable and they last.

Mylar Stencils are durable and can be used for a wide range of applications including the identification of many things from Trade Show Display Cases, Rental Equipment to the walls of your Child’s Nursery and almost everything in between.

Oil Board Stencils are a little less expensive and ideal for those applications where a stencil might be used just once a few times and then discarded.

Whatever your stenciling needs, Millennium Signatures has the ability to create the artwork (or take your existing files) and custom cut the stencils to suit your needs, quickly and cost effectively. In most cases we can produce your stencils right away and ship the very next day.
