Hello,

So I saw on trotec’s website that synthetic leather was an approaved material - but this dosn’t seem to be the end of the story - I understand there are commonly two types of synthetic leather (not including reconstituted/ bonded leather). One contains PVC and is comonly sold as vinyl leather/leatherette/pleather and the other is polyurethane based pleather/leatherette commonly called PU leather.

My understanding is that the first of these will kill me / blind me with chlorine and the second will be ok? Also does anyone have any experience laser cutting non-organic leather alturnatives?
