Transparent, shiny plastic that lends itself well to laser-cutting.

Untinted acrylic has excellent clarity and light transmission and is one of the most frequently used plastics for laser cutting.

Design: For most applications acrylic is an easy-to-use material with few issues. However, when connecting the material by means of slots or finger joints, it is important to take the thickness tolerance into account. The sheet thickness can vary by a few tenths of a millimetre; it is therefore advisable to design sufficiently large joints.
Acrylic is a brittle material; rather than becoming deformed, it will sooner split or break if the stresses are too high. To reduce the risk of splitting of stress-bearing components, inside corners can be rounded off. Flexible connections such as snap-locks and sninges can be made reliable, but must be designed in such a way that the internal stresses in the material do not become too great. Testing and optimising these features before actual production is a must.

Finishing: Finishing is usually not necessary because of the high quality finish the material has as standard. It is however extremely suitable for dyeing or printing on. Surfaces can be given a matte finish using fine sandpaper or by sandblasting.

Bonding: It is possible to glue acrylic, but solvent-based adhesives are not recommended for use with laser-cut parts. Acrylic can be easily attached or joined with double-sided adhesive film.

Appearance: Acrylic is excellent for laser-cutting and the process leaves behind very few traces. The cut edge becomes shiny and clear with no discolouration. As there is virtually no melting of the cut edge it is possible to cut fine details.
Surface engraving is possible and results in a matte white surface. The protective film is removed before surface engraving such that very light smoke formation can be observed around the engraving. Line engraving is also possible and results in a clearly visible line.
