Laser cutting acrylic has many advantages, highly accurate, polished edges, complex shapes, repeatability, economical and reduced risk of damage during cutting. The edges are smooth and there is no need for any subsequent cleaning and polishing.
There is two types of acrylics, cast and extruded. Casting yields a harder, sturdier, and more homogenous product and has greater chemical resistance with a greater range of thickness available. Extruded acrylic is less expensive but suffers from crazing on the laser cut edge. It is import to not use any type of solvent when cleaning. Acrylic offers a natural UV stable technology. We primarily cut cast acrylic.
