Banned Materials

Some materials are dangerous to put in the laser cutter. If you are not sure what a material is then do not cut it. Some plastics look like acrylic but release chlorine gas when cut. Experience laser operators and maintainers can test samples of materials with extreme caution.

Forbidden Materials:

  • Polycarbonates - Releases cyanide - very dangerous to people
  • PVC or Vinyl - Releases chlorine gas - very dangerous to people and very bad for machine
  • Glass - you can etch it but if you try to cut it will shatter.
