The Best Metal for your Laser Cutting Project

December 10, 2020

Metal as a laser cutting material offers the most advantages due to its durability and resistance to weathering. With so many options available, how will you know that you’ve chosen the best laser cutting material for your project?


The answer to this question depends on your applications. Is the end product intended to be used indoors or outdoors? Areaesthetics the most important in the design of the project? These two and other related questions will help you choose the best material for your application.


Let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular laser cutting materials and how they differ from one material to another.



If you want a much more affordable yet durable material for your applications, then opt for aluminum. Aluminum is a cost-effective option for outdoor signage that can still weather to extreme weather. When exposed to oxygen, aluminum naturally develops an oxide layer that protects it from corrosion.



Stainless steel

If you are seeking a more elegant and professional looking product, then go for stainless steel. Luxury brands are benefitting from the sleek and polished look of stainless steel. Although it is expensive compared to aluminum, the aesthetic appeal and durability of stainless steel makes it worth the price.



Copper laser cutting projects are easily recognized with their shiny, beautiful, rosy-pink colour. However, as time goes by, minerals may start to coat the copper’s surface creating a blue-green to gray-green patina. These color changes make copper unique aesthetically. Copper laser cutting projects go well in both outdoor or indoor applications. In the world of design, copper projects blend in rustic, vintage, contemporary, and modern spaces. 


Indeed, there’s no such thing as the perfect material for laser cutting. However, you have the choice to choose the material that will offer you the most benefits.
