If you don’t want to click through, the relevant information is this MSDS from Formica. They do specifically address laser cutting and formaldehyde on page 7.
I don’t think anyone on this forum has posted any experiences with it.
Cool looking necklaces though.
After reading the MSDS and upper respiratory issues with the dust, I’m stealing clear of plastic laminate.
