Materials unsuitable for laser processing

Materials not suitable for processing with a laser

We often get asked by customers if there are any materials not suited for laser processing and cutting. There are a number of such materials as processing or cutting these with a laser will create dangerous gases or dust which may endanger the laser user or the functionality of the laser machine. We have compiled a comprehensive list of materials that we recommend are not used for laser cutting, laser marking or laser engraving. If you are unsure please contact Trotec and we are happy to either advise you or undertake material testing on your behalf.
