Marpet in laser test

Laser cutting of solid PET sheets

Marpet is a brand of the Northern Irish company Brett Martin.
Marpet-g FS and Marpet-a FS are two types of transparent polyester sheets that score with light transmission and clarity, but also impact resistance and fire protection properties.

eurolaser has now had a closer look at Marpet-g FS and Marpet-a FS. The material was tested in the in-house application laboratory with regard to the properties during laser processing.

Benefits of the cutting of Marpet with CO₂ lasers:

  • Clean and optically perfect cut edges - no post processing is necessary
  • Contact-free cutting - No fixation of the material necessary 
  • Vacuum table helps with the positioning of the material
  • No clean-up as nothing can stick to the laser


  • No tool wear
  • Consistently high cutting quality
  • Flexible contour selection can be selected flexibly
  • High flexibility - tool changes obsolete

Scope of application

Due to their properties, Marpet-g FS and Marpet-a FS are mainly used in the advertising and signage industry. Here, designers appreciate the material properties of this PET for glazing or protective applications. More complex shapes become possible.
Marpet-g FS is particularly shock-resistant and durable and is therefore used for displays, signs and also protective shields.
Marpet-a FS shines with its high optical quality and excellent cold properties. It is used for storing cold food, but also as a protective wall or protective device on machines.

Properties of Marpet:

  • High impact resistance
  • Chemical resistance
  • Good fire protection properties
  • Recyclable
  • Printable
