Polyester

Your supply only. We don’t hold stock of any polyester material. The fabrics gallery is to give an indication of how the laser reacts to different textiles. We recommend having your fabric sent straight to us from your supplier once a quotation is confirmed.

Thickness: Any thickness
Sheet size: Any size up to 2400×1200mm

Material properties

Polyester is a strong and durable synthetic fabric made from polymer plastic fibres. It is resistant to stretching, shrinking and wrinkling. Often woven with other fabrics.


Laser cutting

As with all synthetic fabrics, the laser cuts cleanly with little marking on the top surface. We cut fabrics on the engraving table or clean honeycomb bed which can also sometimes mark the underside of the material.


Cut edge

The laser seals the edge to prevent fraying with a subtle melted appearance.


Cut widths & Kerf

As a benchmark, we recommend that minimum cut widths be no thinner than 2mm. We can go smaller (see cut width image above) but this can make your fabric quite fragile which might not be suitable for the application. See more on cut widths and Kerf (how much the laser takes away.)


Laser engraving

Laser engraving isn’t advised as it can cause the material to warp under the intense heat of the laser. Nevertheless it can be done if engraved area is relatively small. The appearance will usually be slightly glossy and darker in contrast to the polyester surface.


Supplying fabrics as flat as possible

You need to make sure you supply your polyester as flat as possible. Try and make sure it is not crumpled, this can cause issues when cutting.
