MATERIALS

Copper

Copper

Well known as the material of choice for CO2 industrial laser mirrors, they are used in laser metal cutting, laser engraving, and laser welding. Many other infrared applications can also use copper mirrors and they are the most common laser mirror type for high energy and broadband infrared applications.

Aluminium

Aluminium

Our aluminium mirrors are chemically polished. This ensures that the surfaces are super-smooth and free of turning lines, fly cutting arcs and diffractive patterns that lower the surface quality of diamond turned mirrors.

molybdenum

Molybdenum

Solid molybdenum mirrors are used in high power CO2 laser welding where debris and back spatter would destroy other mirrors. In laser cutting the final mirror of the delivery system is often upgraded to a molybdenum one, as this is the most exposed and therefore most frequently damaged mirror.

Stainless Steel

Mirrors made from uncoated stainless steel (or Inox) are extremely versatile with uses in many industries such as pharmaceutical, brewing, medical and nuclear. The corrosion resistance of stainless steel is perfect for use in outdoor applications and in humid or dusty conditions.

E-Nickel

E-Nickel

Manufacturers of high powered CO2 lasers have long specified nickel plated copper mirrors for their cavity mirrors, especially in slab discharge lasers or sealed laser cavities.
