CO2 Cutting Polyester, Carbon Fiber and G10 Fiberglass

Polyester

Polyester is a very good candidate for laser processing with clean cut edges that seal after laser processing.

Carbon fiber

On the carbon fiber expect some cosmetic charring of the fiber weave caused by the heat of the laser and expect a lot of fumes and strong smell associated with vaporized fiber weave and associated bonding agents. This process will require a fume extraction system and possibly a nitrogen gas assist to minimize charring.

G10 / Fiberglass

On the fiberglass expect some cosmetic charring of the fiber weave caused by the heat of the laser and expect a lot of fumes and strong smell associated with vaporized fiber weave and associated bonding agents.
