Polycarbonate plastic sheet

I am trying to find out if it is safe to use polycarbonate plastic sheets in my glowforge and input? My neighbor has several sheets he offered me but I do not want to ruin my machine.

In geneal, it’s safe, but does not cut well.


Welcome to the forum :slight_smile: Ditto to what @eflyguy said, and so you know if you put a term into the search box you’ll find a wealth of information from over the years!



Polycarbonate does not laser very well. Thin material will cut but the cut area will be yellow and sooty. It also likes to flare up, so best to avoid it.
