Be careful when lasering PVC foils!
What risks and options are there?
PVC is flame-retardant and can be produced in both a transparent as well as a coloured form. PVC-U is characterised by its high mechanical strength and hardness. This form of PVC is often used in the building and electrical industries and in mechanical engineering. The addition of softeners gives PVC-P an almost rubber-like elasticity and therefore excellent damping properties. It is used mainly in advertising technology, the packaging industry, medical appliances and the photographic industry.
