LaserPro ™ Laser-Cuttable Film

LaserPro ™ laser-cuttable film is a family of polyester films which has been specially coated for more efficient laser fabrication.  It’s our special coating that makes this film so laser-cuttable. The coating allows stacks of sheets to be laser cut without the film permanently welding to itself, so multiple copies can be fabricated simultaneously. Grafix Plastics offers a wide variety of stock LaserPro products, and can also custom top-coat any type of oriented polyester base film with our proprietary coating.  On a custom basis, we can make any polyester film to be laser-cuttable!
