Ferro Corp.: Laser Marking Materials

November 21, 2005
Part of Ferro Corp.'s Glass Systems business, CerMark Laser Marking materials have successfully survived nearly four years of low earth orbit (LEO) exposure on the exterior of the International Space Station (ISS). CerMark supplied bar code test marks on aluminum and glass, which passed the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) criteria for its Material International Space Station Experiment (MISSE). "This is a significant achievement for CerMark's laser marking business and Ferro Corporation as well," said David Smith, sales manager, Laser Marking. "Our products have consistently produced high-quality, durable marks for years -- and few products can claim space as a test market. We welcomed the opportunity and are extremely pleased with the results."
