Home / Materials / Traffolyte


At Engratek our industrial and commercial labels are manufactured using a variety of traffolyte and plastic composite available in a variety of colours and finishes. You can be assured we will have the product to suit your application.

These labels are manufactured using the best quality materials and the most advanced laser and cnc engraving technology.

However there are some serious limitations with regard to Health & Safety. Although we have the best extraction and filtration systems available we still limit the plastics we cut to the ones we know are relatively safe. These include Acrylic, Polypropylene, Polycarbonate, Nylon, LDPE / HDPE, HIPS and Mylar.


The list is not exhaustive, but gives you an idea of the range we stock and cut. Edge quality of laser cut plastic is, on the whole, excellent – for example we can laser cut acrylic with a polished edge to give a finished component with no secondary polishing required. Typical applications range from Point-of Sale systems to engineered components.

We can also CNC router cut / engrave tri tone rotary engravable stock traffolyte. This material is much more robust than the co2 laserable material for outdoor applications.
