Laser safe? Black Dog Furniture Paint

I’m interested in trying out an aesthetic effect where I etch off a layer of paint to reveal the color beneath. The paint I have is Black Dog matte black, which is a water-based paint (Woodcraft’s store brand, I believe, and apparently now discontinued).

I don’t see anything that looks alarming in the data sheet, but curious if anyone has expertise on similar materials?

Note that the data sheet that I found is for a different color, but the ingredients listed appear to be identical:

Yep it’s fine. Vinyl is what we worry about. There are vinyl matt emulsion paints. I’ve only seen references to them as interior room paint and they all seem to be references from the UK, I’ve never seen them in person.

I have not seen a paint that caused a problem with the lasers yet.
