Thanks for bringing this request to the LCC for consideration.
The provided SDS is not a ‘real’ SDS however there were no obvious red flags found in the supporting material.
Adhesive Type: Modified Acrylic
Foam Type: Very Conformable Acrylic Foam
Liner: PET Film
According to the RDS it doesn’t involve California’s prop 65 legislation, aka, it doesn’t cause cancer.
With that in mind the LCC is going to provide a provisional approval to cut 3M VHB tape.
However the LCC would like to have some initial observations made and reported back to this thread and to the slack laser channel.
A few photos/short videos of cuts being made with this material showing the amount of smoke generated, flare ups (if any)
A smell check should be completed. i.e. Does cutting this material stink up the space? Is there a noticable smell outside at the vent?
A “nice to do” but not absolutly essential is that a Burn Test be conducted on small piece of this material. i.e. get a small square of this material and set it on fire with a blow torch and observe color of the flame. Again a short video clip would be great.
Hackaday-> Identify Plastics before Laser Cutting
If no further issues are observed with this material then it will be given full approval for VHS laser use.
Regards from the LCC
