Advantages & disadvantages of markers when it’s necessary to label stainless steel
Low-corrosion ink will minimise the damage to stainless steel
When used to label v2a stainless steel, edding markers won’t scratch or harm the surface in any way. The low-corrosion ink is permanent yet kind to any type of surface. Two particular markers stand out for use in the field of aviation and aeronautics: The edding 8030 NLS high-tech marker conforms to German aviation standards, while the British Aerospace Airbus labels the edding 8404 aerospace marker as being safe for aviation use.
Suitable option for permanent labelling
If it's necessary to mark stainless steel, many of today's writing tools contain ink that is waterproof, permanent, wear-resistant, and smudge-proof. In contrast to using laser engraving, the ink can also be removed with the correct solvent, if necessary.
Fast, efficient to use, and requires no power
To make a quick label or note on a type of v2a material, there is often no time to use anything other than a marker. Unlike printers or lasers, no electricity or battery power is necessary to mark a material. As well, it’s incredibly quick to use different markers if another colour or stroke width is needed. Some markers come with an attached clip, which could be hung on a shirt or jacket and then be ready to use at any moment.
Provides a different result than laser engraving
If a customer requires incredibly small or precise lettering on a v2a stainless steel item, it might be neater to use laser engraving, rather than a marker. However, lasers can be costly and the result will be unchangeable once hitting the surface of the steel.
Typical scenarios to mark stainless steel
Due to the fact that so many different types of industries need to use writing products for a variety of applications, it's necessary to cater to practically everyone. From aircraft industries to power plants to automotive factories, employees will require the right tool for the right job. People will need to label stainless steel for the following reasons:
- Marking a particular machine part to help with identifying a reorder code
- Clearly marking out the area if a cut or bolt is necessary
- Passing on crucial information to other colleagues regarding a specific section of machinery
- Recording info like weight or dimensions needed for future steps
Regarding which type of edding products are best needed when working with v2a material, there are several possibilities. The edding 751 paint marker is a solid all-round option, as it can write on metal, glass, wood, and a lot more, as well as coming in many colour options and in heat-resistant ink. Aviation or shipping machinery, for example, require markers with low-corrosion and wear-resistant properties, like the edding 8030 NLS high-tech marker or the edding 8404 aerospace marker.
