Hi,
Does anyone know if there is a recylcled plastic product that we can use on the laser?
I’ve looked around the web and can’t seem to find anything.

Or is this type of product just not available / possible? Apologies, I don’t know much about the manufacturing process.

Thanks,
Roy

Funny you should ask that because I just did an experiment to turn our own laser waste in to new sheets. It looks very possible.

You can definitely buy 100% recycled acrylic, e.g here https://www.cutplasticsheeting.co.uk/clear-acrylic-sheeting/recycled-clear-cast-acrylic/?gid=8&gclid=Cj0KCQiA28nfBRCDARIsANc5BFAKYSLExdGPn_RFcFXT5ZDWWvjdzKgDIEQMD1tHAmSITAg_j9YXs2AaArEQEALw_wcB#thickness:3.0+mm
