Laserable Materials Matrix

The materials matrix lists the various materials that are known to be compatible with our current laser systems as well as whether the particular material can be cut, engraved, and/or marked.  The matrix also notes the materials that we cannot process in our laser systems due to hazardous or corrosive byproducts created during the laser cutting, engraving, and/or marking process.

* Maximum thickness that can be cut varies by material type and density and will need to be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Due to the many variables involved with successfully cutting, engraving, or marking any material, we may request a material sample for testing and/or process optimization to ensure that we can achieve a desired result.


Materials That Cannot Be Laser Cut/Engraved/Marked

The following materials cannot be processed in our laser systems due to hazardous or corrosive byproducts created during the laser cutting, engraving, and/or marking process.
 

 Carbon Fiber
 Dicroic Glass
 Fiberglass
 Polycarbonate (e.g. Lexan)
 Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
 Vinyl
