As big and bad as it is, plastic stops it like Kryptonite. We have to pre-burn the thin protective plastic film off of metal before cutting or it won’t cut the metal. Even a plastic or paper label on the back side of metal might cause it not to completely cut the metal.

Took some googling but the prices seems to start around 20k :frowning:, for a borring flat one too.
