Can any type of leather be processed with the laser?
You can process both genuine and faux leather such as leatherette with a laser machine. Please note that faux leather often contains PVC compounds. Such materials must not be processed with a laser, as there is a danger that harmful gases may be released.
What is the best way to clean a finished workpiece?
A distinction between genuine and faux leather must be made. For genuine leather, we unfortunately cannot recommend any cleaning agents. Aggressive cleaning agents can dry the material out or form spots. However, if you still want to use a cleaning agent, please try it on a test piece. Leatherette and other faux leathers by contrast, can be easily cleaned with a damp sponge without distorting.
