Cuttting alumicore

Has anyone cut alumicore before? basically corrugated plastic with a thin layer of aluminium on each side.

Was thinking a 1/8" o’flute would cut it but thought I’d see what others are using.

Thanks!

I’ve cut the Aluminum composite material, its aluminum with solid plastic in the middle instead of the corrugated plastic. I used a 90 degree bit to engrave and the1/8" - 2 flute straight bit that Inventables sells to cut it out. I also cut some using a 1/4" router bit that cut 3/8". Need to go fast ans shallow passes.
