For drilling, there are some sensitivities to conditions and procedures:
For further detail on drill-bit modification and drilling techniques, please contact Altuglas International.
The following information on cutting, routing and trimming has been provided by Onsrud Cutter. For this exercise, samples of the indicated sheet structures were provided to Onsrud Cutter, and the optimal process conditions were defined as the combination of bit and router settings that produced the highest quality edge finish.
For cutting/trimming fiberglass-reinforced Solarkote® multi-layer sheet with CNC or air routers, a standard solid carbide FGR (fiberglass router – diamond-cut) tool can be used. Routing parts in a CNC environment is best done with chip-breaker-type, solid carbide tools. Routing fiberglass by hand is best done with straight-flute, carbide-tipped tools (for added cutter body strength).
