I am interested in attaching my laser able rubber to draft board and cutting the two at the same time. I figured out 1) whimpy adhesives do not adhere to rubber, and 2) laser cutting something that has been superglued is a bad idea.
I found this 3M product: 3M 5906 VHB .006" double sticky foam tape
and an eBay seller who says it’s great for laser cutting.
I found an SDS for it, but I don’t know what I’m looking for.
Also 3M has a whole page about it, and I also don’t know what I’m looking for.
I actually don’t know if it will stick to the rubber, but it looks pretty darn sticky (technical term).
Does someone want to tell me if I can laser this stuff? And does anyone have an opinion about cutting through draftboard+amazon orange rubber+this sticky stuff at the same time?
I hve some wood veneer with the 3M adhesive. I tried adhering it to PG acrylic to simplify operations (a fancy stick shuttle for those who must know). It took two or three passes to ensure the cut went all the way through. My ‘sandwich’ was probably thinner than yours is going to be, so I would guess it won’t be as easy as you hope, if it works at all.
But it might work, so don’t let my comment stop you. Just be prepared to not move anything as you test the quality of the cut.
