Can resin be engraved?

Hi,

Having a bit of an issue finding out anything about this. Does anyone know if polyurethane casting resin (once poured and cast) can be laser engraved?.

I guess it's more of a case of it giving off potentially nasty gases, as the engraving itself would technically work.

cheers

"Dust from sanding and cutting finished polyurethane may cause skin and respiratory problems due to the presence of unreacted chemicals from the curing process."
