Which glass we recommend for laser processing

The ideal glass for laser engraving or cutting should have certain properties to ensure a successful and efficient process. Here are some recommendations for types of glass that are commonly used in laser processing:

  • Borosilicate Glass:

Borosilicate glass is a popular choice for laser processing. It has a low coefficient of thermal expansion, making it less prone to cracking due to rapid temperature changes during laser engraving or cutting.

  • Leaded Glass:

Leaded glass, often used in crystal and decorative glassware, is another good option. The lead content can enhance the glass's ability to absorb laser energy and improve the quality of the engraving.

  • Float Glass:

Float glass is a standard glass type commonly used in windows and glass doors. It can be suitable for laser processing, but it may require specific laser settings due to its higher iron content, which can affect the engraving color.

  • Soda-Lime Glass:

Soda-lime glass is a common type of glass that contains soda, lime, and silica. While it can be laser processed, it may not produce the same high-quality results as borosilicate or leaded glass.

  • Coated Glass:

Some laser engraving machines work well with coated glass, where a special coating is applied to enhance the engraving contrast. These coatings can be designed to react with the laser energy, providing a more visible mark.
