Eco iron on vs regular vinyl

I made this video a little while ago talking about what you can or can’t use in your glowforge including the new aura. Short summary is anything that is true vinyl you should not use in your Glowforge. And the eco iron on proofgrade you can use because it doesn’t have vinyl in it.
I seen more questions about this so I figured I’d share this video in the everything else category since it contains non proofgrade info in it:

Hopefully this helps clear some things up between the two.


Actually, to be clear, it doesn’t have chlorine in it. It’s the chlorine in PVC (polyvinyl chloride) that is bad for your machine, not the vinyl. There are films that contain vinyl but no chlorine, however I think the eco iron on is polyurethane based (also has no chlorine).


Good call out
