PET Film

PET Film Overview

PET film is thermoplastic polyester that can be laser cut, marked, and engraved. The chemical name for PET is polyethylene terephthalate. PET Film laser cutting can be done with either a 9.3 or 10.6 micron wavelength CO2 laser. However, PET Film laser marking requires a 9.3 micron CO2 laser. The 9.3 micron laser wavelength is absorbed at the surface of the PET film forming a white frosted surface mark. The surface mark does not interfere with the integrity of the PET film.
