Dibond cut possible?

Is it possible to cut Dibond with this thing?

“two 0.3 mm aluminium surface layers with a polyethylene core”

No you can’t cut metal with a 45W laser.


#3

Is that because it is reflective or just because it is metal?
If it’s because it’s reflective, then surely covering it with some sort of mask would solve that?


#4

Because, being metal, it is highly conductive, so the heat is quickly carried away. Also metals have a high vaporisation temperature.


#5

it should, however, be able to mark colored dibond.

Ah, fair enough.
