Abstract

This invention consists of taking standard widths of annealed Amorphous Met Glas and laminating it to produce wider width. Two lengths were made and laminated together with a 0.375" overlap to produce a cross annealed piece of Amorphous Met glas that was 3.62" wide. Standard transfer adhesive was used. The results show that the laminated construction produced a useable marker with characteristics very similar to current material. Additionally, further work indicates that careful selection of the length and widths of these new markers can produce signals that are in excess to currently known markers. A piece of 3.80" wide laminate from standard was chopped to a 0.028" width and provided a 47% greater signal than a standard construction and used 93% as much material.
