Cutting, Drilling and Milling

Circular saws, band saws, jig saws and common hacksaws, all with fine toothed panel blades, can be used for trouble free cutting of Polycarbonate sheets. Standard high-speed steel twist drill or carbide tipped drills can be used for drilling holes in this material. Polycarbonate can be machined using conventional milling machines fitted with standard high-speed knife cutting tools. During such operations, these sheets must always be securely clamped to avoid a rough-cut edge by undesirable vibration and the masking should be left on the sheet to prevent surface damage by scratching.
