How you can use a laser machine to engrave plastic sheets.

Multi-layer plastic sheets, often called laminates, are particularly popular for laser engraving. They are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and are available in many colors and effects.

The 2 to 3-layer engraving plastics have a modified acrylic core and a thin top layer. Ideal for laser engraving and laser cutting. The laser machine removes the top layer quickly, without contact or post processing. The color of the core material appears.
