LazerMed™: A Biocompatible Laser Marking Technology Introduced by Foster Corporation

Foster Corporation has introduced LazerMed™, which is a biocompatible laser marking technology. It offers high resolution, durable printing capability for plastic materials used in medical devices such as tubing, catheter shafts, labware, and medical equipment.

Laser Marking: Eco-Friendly Printing

Laser marking is a contact-free process that provides for ultra-fast printing that is eco-friendly (no solvents), with no pre-treatment of substrates required. In addition, there are no consumables (inks) required, as the laser marking pigments are melt blended into the polymer at the compounding stage. This proprietary technology has no effect on the sterilization process and can be added to a polymer as a masterbatch. The result is a permanent solution that can be used for injection molded, extruded, and blow molded components.

LazerMed™: Eco-Friendly and Cost-Effective

The LazerMed technology is manufactured using state-of-the-art laser marking pigments. These pigments provide a versatile printing platform that can be used in a vast majority of plastic materials. It can be used in transparent and opaque materials, which are further used in medical device applications. Laser marking pigments are weather durable, available for high temperature applications and have passed USP Class VI testing for biocompatibility.

“LazerMed laser marking technology benefits medical device manufacturers by offering an eco-friendly cost effective alternative to traditional printing technique,” said Tim Largier, Manager of Research & Development at Foster. “It benefits users at the delivery level by providing a permanent and safe method for labelling medical devices and components.”
