Paper And Fabric Grades
Standard shears suitable for sheet metal are recommended for shearing Atlas Fibre materials. The knife blade should be kept sharp and the material held rigid with a hold-down bar. Most paper laminates up to 1/16” thickness and canvas laminates up to 1/8” thickness may be sheared at room temperature (70°F min.).
Glass Base Grades
Thickness up to 1/8” can be sheared at room temperature, however the sheared edge will not be as clean or burr free as a sawed edge.
