Why Use Stainless Steel?
Whether engraved or laser etched, stainless steel plaques and signs are extremely durable and robust. As a result, they are often used in areas and applications that are subject to high risk of corrosion and environmental degradation.
Advantages of Laser Etching
The main advantages of high power, high definition laser etching over the engrave and paint fill process are:
- The mark or image is permanent
- There is a wide range of suitable font styles
- Fine detail logos and photos can be reproduced
- The laser etching process can be achieved at a more economical price

What Types Of Steel?
We offer a range of high quality stainless steel, using either 316 (Marine) Grade or 304 Grade with a standard No.4 finish (brushed) although we also offer bright and mirror finishes if required.
316 Marine Grade steel is especially suited for Australian conditions.
Laser etching is a metal marking solution. It’s almost like a print on the surface of the steel. This provides a permanent black mark which is fused into the surface of the stainless steel. This etching can stand up to severe abrasion and outdoor exposure.
