KYDEX Material

Hello all!
I am looking to engrave on Kydex ( thermoplastic acrylic-polyvinyl chloride materials) material. Not sure if this a material will ruin my GF so rather ask than be sorry.
Thanks!

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) will absolutely ruin it when burned. Do not laser.
(Smart chickie to ask!) :wink:

I LOVE KYDEX, its the most awesome gun holster material every made, a buttery smooth plastic, and bought a sheet to GF, and learned its bad!

I have a knife with a Kydex sheath and wanted to engrave on it. Guess not! Thanks for the info!

Engrave on a piece of leather and rivet it onto the sheath. It would make a nice highlight.
