Tips for working with leather:
Caution: Artificial leather often containscomponents like PVC, which should notbe laser-cut or engraved with Mr Beam! Please request a full composition of your material from your manufacturer / vendor. We have put together a list of materials and chemical components, which should not be laser-cut with Mr Beam in this article.
artificial leather vs natural lather: artificial leather is much easier to work with and does not produce an unpleasant smell, as opposed to natural leather.
Buckling: if your material starts to buckle during laser-cutting or engraving, try reducing the laser intensity or increasing the speed, to prevent the material from getting too much heat.
To clean your finished product made from natural leather, we recommend only using a brush, no aggressive cleaning agents or water. Artificial leather can also be cleaned with a slightly wet sponge.
Vegan laser leather: We also have vegan leather in dark and bright brown on offer inour Shop. This material is a composite material from paper and plastics, is tear-proof and even washable! (also for the washing machine) To achieve a leather look, knead the material with your hands, wash it and iron it.
