Lasers are growing in popularity among fabricators working with a wide range of materials. Offering exceptional clarity, toughness, high chemical resistance and excellent forming capabilities, PET or PETG sheet can be a valuable companion material to laser cutting. CO2 laser is capable of cutting PET or PETG with speed, flexibility, and pinpoint precision, allowing the creation of practically any shape to exacting specifications. CO2 laser cutter designed and built by Goldenlaser is ideally suitable for cutting PET or PETG.
The PET/PETG results in fine edges and maintains its transparency when is laser cut . The quality of the incision is fine where no signs of flaking or chips can be found.
Laser engraving PET/PETG results in clear marks, as the material loses its transparency in the engraved area.
PET, which stands for polyethylene terephthalate, is a clear, strong and lightweight plastic belonging to the polyester family. PET is the world's packaging choice, or made into carpet, clothing, automotive parts, construction materials, industrial strapping, and scores of other products. PET film is often an excellent choice for more demanding applications in food and nonfood-film applications. Major uses include packaging, plastic wrap, tape backing, printed films, plastic cards, protective coatings, release films, transformer insulation films and flexible printed circuits. PET can be a valuable companion material to laser cutting. Additionally, PETG offers exceptional clarity, toughness, high chemical resistance and excellent forming capabilities, and perfect for marking and cutting with CO2 laser.
