Marking Types



Additional Info

Glass is a versatile material that can be marked with various methods, including laser marking, sandblasting, acid etching, and screen printing.

Laser Marking

Laser marking is a popular method used for marking glass because it can create high-contrast and permanent marks with excellent precision. The marks can be used for branding, part identification, and traceability.



Sandblasting is another common method of marking glass, which involves blasting a high-pressure stream of abrasive material at the glass surface to create a frosted effect. This is often used for decorative purposes, such as creating custom designs on glassware or signage.

Acid Etching

Acid etching is a chemical process used to mark glass surfaces by applying an acid-resistant stencil to the glass surface and then etching the exposed areas with an acid solution. This method is often used for creating intricate designs on glassware, as well as for decorative purposes such as creating frosted glass panels.

Screen Printing

Screen printing is a method that uses a mesh screen to apply ink to the glass surface. This technique is often used for labeling glass bottles and jars in the food and beverage industry.


Glass marking is commonly used in the automotive industry for windshields and windows, allowing for easy identification and traceability.

It is also used in the medical industry for marking medical equipment, such as glass vials and syringes, to ensure the correct dosage and reduce the risk of contamination.

In the electronics industry, glass is often marked for part identification and traceability purposes, as well as aesthetic purposes on consumer electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets.




Glass Advantages

Glass part marking is a precise and durable method used in the part marking industry to label or identify different glass substrates. Here are some of the advantages of using glass part marking:

Durability: Glass marking is a highly durable method that can withstand exposure to various environmental conditions. The markings are resistant to fading, chipping, and scratching, ensuring that they remain legible and intact for a long time.

Precision: Glass marking allows for highly precise and detailed markings to be applied to the surface of the glass. This is particularly useful for applications that require a high level of accuracy and precision, such as product identification codes or serial numbers.

Resistance to chemicals: Glass markings are highly resistant to chemicals and solvents, making them suitable for use in harsh environments that may expose the glass to chemicals or other harsh substances.

Aesthetics: Glass markings can be applied in a range of colors, including black, white, and various shades of grey. This allows for the creation of highly visible markings that are aesthetically pleasing and complement the overall design of the glass substrate.

Easy to clean: Glass markings are easy to clean and maintain, and can be easily wiped clean without causing any damage to the markings themselves.

In summary, glass part marking is a precise, durable, and aesthetically pleasing method that is ideal for applications that require high levels of accuracy and precision. Its resistance to chemicals and easy-to-clean properties make it a popular choice in the part marking industry for glass substrates.
