Laser Cutting or Engraving Acrylic

LASER ENGRAVING ACRYLIC

Laser processing cast acrylic produces a cool frosted or white effect with an overall good quality looking finish. Cast acrylic sheets are typically colored and used for low power laser engraving (typically without masking). Whereas engraving extruded acrylic will look matt grey. But, keep in mind Cast sheets have as much as a 30% thickness variance from one sheet to the next.


LASER CUTTING ACRYLIC

Although extruded acrylic has limited color selection (clear, opal and black) cutting extruded is much cleaner than cast. The laser vaporizes through extruded more easily leaving a smooth, almost glass-like, flame polished edge. Its also cheaper than cast. Cast is harder to flame polish and you'll notice a slightly rougher edge.  But, cast has that nice white contrast when engraved
