Lasersheet’s laser board: what is it and what can you do with it?

Clean-cut buildings, detailed windows, and beautiful fencing; these are only a few examples of what the model builder can do with their laser cutter and our laser board. At Lasersheets we are crazy about this material, not only because it is so easy to cut and engrave with your laser cutter. It allows you to apply the smallest details and the material remains strong, does not show any burn marks, and does not deform due to the heat.

Laser board is an ideal material for model building, but also for making stencils, or an overlay that  you can bend or paint.

We think that laser board should get a prominent place in your workshop. Read more about the unique characteristics of this material, and about what you and your laser cutter can do with it.

What is laser board?

Laser board is a lightweight and thin (0.5mm or 0.9mm) piece of cardboard, soaked in resin. This resin makes it very strong and you can even add the smallest details. There is no need to worry about them breaking off. The heat of the laser cutter does not deform the material and also does not cause burnt or darkened edges.

For all these reasons, laser board is an ideal material for use in model building. There is no other material with which you can realise details as fine as with laser board. Create a façade with detailed windows and crumbled stones, a royal wooden staircase, or a beautiful walled front garden for your model design.

The characteristics of laser board

The possibilities with laser board in model building are huge. That is mainly because of the unique characteristics of this material.

The list below clearly proves how versatile it is.

  • Laser board is thin and lightweight, yet very strong.
  • It is flexible and it can be bent if need be.
  • You can paint and glue laser board.
  • It is a material which can be both cut as well as engraved.
  • There is no other material into which you can laser such fine details.

    This is what you can create with laser board

    Our laser board is produced by PolyBAK and - as is the case with all our sheet material -  can of course be perfectly processed with laser cutters. So, what can you do with it?

    1. Fine engraving and cutting

    As mentioned earlier, laser board is very strong. You can use it for cutting the most detailed images. These can be parts of your model, but also a drawing you made or a picture you edited.

    The petals of flowers are cut out perfectly, your historic façade receives unprecedented detail (down to hairlines in the stones) and even the antennae and legs of insects remain intact.

    2. Stencils

    Laser board is also a fine material for making stencils. You can use stencils for placing images or texts on walls and items. It is ideal for repeatedly applying a logo, for example. Create a stencil with your laser cutter and spray paint your own logo on all your products.

    The advantage of stencils is that they can be reused. By using multiple stencils you create an image with different layers and colors.

    3. An overlay for your final product

    Our PolyBAK laser board is also widely used as an overlay on another material. It can be easily painted, bent, and glued. Engrave an image into the laser board and place it on the front of a cupboard, on a piece of furniture, on a lamp shade, or any other item that you made for a unique finish.
