Cutting material on the Graphtec FC8000 without backing material

Recommended Posts

I am wondering what folks use as a backing material for cutting films that don't come from the manufacturer with backing materials?

I am running a Graphtec FC8000-130 and I would like to cut a few specialty materials that are .0006" polycarbonate. These however don't have a backing material.

What do I do if I want to run them through the plotter/cutter? Is there a material/adhesive film/transfer-tape-type-film that can be applied to substitute a "backing material"?

@Skeeter. I think Carrier Sheets are the answer. Graphtec even sells it's own version as well. Go figure. Did I just show my greeness? Yikes. Cheers and thanks for the lead. Onward.
