Here’s a possible vinyl alternative that is PVC free. I’ve used it in my Silhouette craft cutter and it works great. I’ll continue to use the Silhouette for regular graphics to be applied to a large surface. But I’m intrigued with trying this:
I’m hoping that this will cut well when applied to a substrate before lasering. I’m thinking of it as a slick alternative to painting or finishing the face of a surface. Think of an MDF box with sheet of red applied and a brick pattern etched through the red to expose mortar lines. Or etching out a sign on a sheet of material covered with it. How about covering acrylic and etching? Then weeding out some of the material and leaving some on to make a clear and colored plaque or sign. If it cuts cleanly without charring, it will open up a lot of possibilities.
Can’t wait to try this when my Glowforge comes in.
Sheets are the perfect size for the Glowforge. They are 12 x 18. Links from the site also have a similar material that is printable on an inkjet.
