To cut in a laser cutter to produce 40mm high door numbers and letters. They need to be raised but not 3mm, which the customers says is too thick……. 1.5mm is the perfect thickness. I’ve ordered some 1.5mm PVC sheeting but would prefer acrylic.
PVC gives off a type of chlorine gas when cut with a laser, as well as corrode all of the important bits of the machine, will pretty much do you in. Avoid cutting foam on your laser at ALL costs! The client can’t have everything they want, half a millimetre won’t kill them, could kill you though
David, thanks for your advice about Traffolyte which has led me up a different path to tce.uk.com and has proved an eyeopener on even more options and has solved all my queries. I have a clear path now to solutions…..thanks again to those who contributed to my post.
I have a supplier in Manchester does all colours in 1.5mm up to 5mm I buy a half sheet and they cut it for me the size I want. The most common size for me is 700mm x 400mm white 1.5mm 10 sheets this size costs me £75.
