How To Inflate Plastic Bottles- into balloons- With Heat and Air Pressure? Answered
1). I would like to use PET drinking water bottles and polyethylene plastic bottles ( taco Sauce, mustard, plastic juice bottles)- for insulation in an attic? Choice 1). using a heat source like a heat gun and my air compressor can I inflate old PET plastic water bottles - into balloons to act as insulation spheres ? Each week I would spend time turning the plastic bottles into thin-walled spheres that would fill up the attic with light-weight spheres- maybe the size of a soccer ball? .
2). If Not choice 1). lets learn how to process plastic bags and packaging into a shredded stringy material to do the attic insulation job. The source of bottles is endless and I hate recycling these to the city and then purchasing expensive fiberglass batt insulation at $40 per roll. Any DIY wizards try this stuff? I could literally mega-insulate the attic. If treating the material with Sodium tetra-borate borax -to get a fire resistance that is doable too. They make clothes, blankets, molded items and padding routinely from old bottles: Why can't I? I would build a shredder or modify a branch shredder machine to do this and make it my recycling hobby over the long term.
