PVC-Free, Laser-Safe Heat Transfer Materials

Siser® Has the The Go-To heat Transfer Materials for Your Laser Cutter!

Laser cutters have exploded on the maker scene in the last few years at all price and experience levels. You may have seen the Glowforge or X-Tool ads all over the place and thought that a laser would be a great addition to your tool set. A laser system is extremely versatile and can cut and engrave many types of materials – but did you know that they can also be used to cut and etch heat transfer vinyl?

Let’s back up for a moment. The term heat transfer vinyl in thrown around the industry like a dog’s chew toy. Not all heat transfer vinyl materials are VINYL… and not all are laser cuttable. Any heat transfer material listed as PVC is a no-go. Whether you have a ventilation system or not, please avoid cutting these materials at all costs. Aside from the damage to your machine, the Chlorine Gas will cause damage to your lungs.

It’s not all doom and gloom however! Almost all Siser’s heat applied materials are PVC-Free and laser safe!

All the heat transfer materials listed below are CPSIA certified, PVC-Free, and safe for all enclosed and ventilated laser systems (except for fiber lasers as these materials don’t readily absorb the energy produced at their wavelength.
