For laser printable polypropylene, Click here for Laser Printable Matte White Polypropylene Super Permanent Adhesive Labels
This CO2 and Nd-Yag 2D UID laser marking material is designed to withstand vigorous post-mark processing as well as excellent dimensional stability, solvent, abrasion, and UV resistance. The 102300-3 provides excellent printability for barcode readability for 2D UID Mil Std 130, as well as US Coast guard and Navy application opportunities. This material is UL Listed for outdoor use. The 102300-3 is a 2.4 mil matte black acrylate Permanent Self Adhesive Label which ablates to a permanent white color with CO2 or and Nd-Yag 2D laser marking. The self adhesive is a 1.2 mil high temperature 3M 350 adhesive with a minimum application temperature of 39°F. High temperature resistance long term of 392F (530 for 1 min., 482°F for 5 min., 440°F for 60 min.). Low temperature resistance is -76°F without stress and -22°F with stress.
102300-3 is excellent for applying to areas that may be subject to impact and does not crack.
102300-3 Matte Black Label requires relatively low focal power to mark and can be marked at up to 40″ per second. The 102300-3 comes with a 1.5 mil clear PET liner than can be cut through, or ask about the kraft paper liner alternative for just kiss cutting.
A Note to Distributors: This material prices out better than many other competitors. At retail pricing below, with 50% more material on a roll, this is priced lower than other laser marking materials.
Some laser marking tapes crumbles like license plate tags if you try to remove them. This does not crumble and is tear resistant. Rippedsheets.com sees many applications for this material where this cumble feature is not necessary including DoD 2D UID because the labels are easier to handle before and during laser marking and application.
Pricing is for rolls only. Roll size is 4.75″ × 984' (This is 50% more material than many other suppliers)

This material is UL Listed for outdoor use. This matte black UL-recognized material is designed for hand-applied and robotically applied high-end serialized, reverse bar coded and variable information labels for applications such as cellular phones, circuit breakers, beepers, power sources, automotive components, etc. Laser etching technology allows labels to be etched off-line, or pre-applied to be etched in-line in high-speed manufacturing processes. This durable material assures excellent dimensional stability and solvent, abrasion and UV resistance.
It provides excellent image quality at etching speeds up to 1000mm/second (40"/second.)This product is recognized by UL Laboratories under 969 Standard for Marking and Labeling Systems.
Durable white polyester film with an automotive-grade matte black laser etchable surface coating:
- Top Layer: 0.4 mil (10 microns) Matte black acrylate
- Base Layer: 2.0 mil (50 microns) Matte white acrylate
Excellent high-temperature pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive which prevents ooze that may result from heat generated by the laser
- Caliper: 1.2 mil (30 microns)
- Min. application temp: +39°F (4°C)
- Min. service temp: -40°F (-40°C)
- Max. service temp: +302°F (+150°C)
Note: For best bonding conditions, application surface should be at room temper-ature or higher. Low temperature surfaces, below +50F can cause the adhesive to become so firm that it will not develop maximum contact with the substrate. Higher initial bonds can be achieved through increased rubdown pressure. In order to get a true measure of the adhesive's effectiveness, the label should be applied and allowed to bond a minimum of 24 hours prior to evaluation.
