Our 12" x 24" Hydbond Acrylic sheets are ideal for laser engraving and cutting projects. This laser-safe sheet features a Hydbond adhesive backing, facilitating secure attachment to hats and other apparel items. With high resistance to wear and tear, it is perfect for producing quality laser engravings and cuts for a variety of uses. For optimal results, we recommend using this product with a Stahls Hotronix 360, as the bottom heat helps the acrylic patch bond without risking damage from melting or creasing.

Top Heated Only Hat Press Settings

If you are utilizing a hat press that is solely heated from the top, we strongly advise against using this product. It is crucial to allow sufficient time for the heat to transfer through the top heat pad and subsequently reach the patch itself. By using a hat press that is solely heated from the top, there is a significant risk of burning the patch, hat, and failing to establish a secure bond.

Laser Compatibility

Most lasers should be compatible with Acrylic as long as the wattage is 10W or higher.

This includes the following manufactures just to name a few. Epilog, Trotec, X-Tool, Thunder, OM-TECH, & Full spectrum

Acrylic Cleaning

Hydbond Acrylic can be cleaned with a product called LA AWESOME.

LA AWESOME, a non-toxic degreaser is the perfect choice for those seeking an effective solution for business or home use.

To ensure optimal results and preserve the quality of your engravings, begin by spraying a small quantity on a microfiber cloth and softly wiping the material surface to eliminate any char or residue caused by the burning of your laser. You can repeat this process until most, if not all char is removed.

Acrylic is very durable, making it suitable for almost any cleaner.

Note: During this process, it is essential to maintain a slight and uniform pressure.

Washing

Hand wash is always our first recommended method.

Wash with soap and water, avoid scrubbing on the patch to preserve engravings.

Machine wash

Hydbond Acrylic is secure enough for a machine wash!

Machine wash on cold

Air dry

Great product

Great look but tough to work with

Easy to laser but the material gets marred easily when pressing so you have to play with it a bit to figure out.

When we say bond, we mean it.

Please consider a pair of pliers if you try to remove a patch. You may also want to make a new one..
