Laser Cutting and Scribing
Perspex® may be laser cut into complex and intricate shapes. Thicknesses up to 25mm may be cut although some experimentation will be necessary to achieve the optimum quality of finish above 12mm. If bonding up to a laser cut edge it may be necessary to carry out a short annealing cycle to reduce the risk of crazing.
Scribe - Breaking
Small pieces of Perspex® up to 4mm thick may be conveniently cut in a straight line by deeply scribing one surface several times with a sharp metal scriber, clamping the sheet with the scribed line uppermost and pressing sharply down over the edge of a bench. Please note, this technique is not suited to extruded.
