Thank you @HalfNormal
Thanks, this a great and simple guide to understanding cutting and lasering on plastics. The overview table is very useful.

Reviewing that document, it has no safety notes for fluoropolymers. Our summary mentions toxic fumes and I believe that is correct. Also, note that the plastic type headers get out of sync with plastic types described for a few slides.
@NedMan this list says that polyoxymethylene (POM, Delrin) releases formaldehyde gas. We didn’t have that in our list before. I added it to the our list; does it make sense to you?
Yes. According to the Sci. Lit. formaldehyde is one of the major thermal oxidative or pyrolysis products of POM.
