Hi Ryan,

Although not recommended there are certain engraving plastics that may provide a contrasting mark using fiber laser depending on the dyes and polymers used in the topcoat.

We recommend testing the material first with your fiber laser before committing to any customer jobs.
Fiber lasers are not suitable for the cutting of engraving plastics.
