To cut the material we’ll use a 10W “DeLux” laser because it is equipped with a nozzle for air-cooling of the cutting site to avoid scorching of the material. Since the material gives off an unpleasant smell of burning rubber during the cutting process, we’ll do cutting in an enclosed transparent cube with an air extraction system.

Carbon deposits form along the cutting lines. You should brush it off (a regular toothbrush will do a good job of it).

After brushing, sample 1 might show a fiber fringe along the cutting lines. To remove it you can use fine sandpaper. To avoid this increase the number of passes up to 3.

Despite the similar thickness and density of samples 2 and 3, they differ in the basic composition. Sample 2 is more rigid and needs more cutting passes.

At the end let’s compare the gaskets made from the Gambit sealing sheet with a milling cutter and a laser.
