Ok, so I saw a couple of very old posts re: PU leather…thought I would raise the question again since I’ve seen conflicting opinions on the web overall. Has anyone engraved it? Or is it considered dangerous and needs to be completely avoided?
I ordered some valets (catch-all’s) to engrave for a friend this week, & didn’t even notice the PU part until now (UGH).
If it’s truly polyurethane then it falls in the “toxic fumes” category (like pretty much everything), so if your ventilation is properly setup you should be fine. But be careful, many artificial leathers are PVC, which would be very bad.
