To the Laser Cutter Committee:
I have heard that bamboo cuts beautifully and have found a local supplier.
The MSDS is here
Key point: “Thermal decomposition products include carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, aliphatic aldehydes, rosin acids, terpenes, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.”
I’m hitting a wall looking up the MSDS for everything after CO2, however terpenes are found in a lot of burning plant matter, including cannabis. Rosin acids are found in burning pine. I’m not sure about aliphatic aldehydes and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
