Electrolytic Marking


Electrolytic marking is based on an electrochemical etching process where the image on a stencil is transferred to an electrically conductive product by the action of electrolyte and electricity.

Electrolytic marking is durable and cheap

The exact copy of a template is applied to an electrically conductive product, in which current and electrolyte react with one another.

Depending on the source material and the current flow, the results are black, white or deep markings – without corrosion or other negative effects on the material. The graphic design options are nearly unlimited.

We have a large number of the most varied OSTLING electrolytes available for you. Your alloys receive a high-quality marking.
No acids or other dangerous substances are applied!
