I Need information for melting PET plastic at home Answered
I want to melt PET plastic at home. I want to make a clear tube. I know i have to dry the plastic as much as possible to keep it clear. I will dry the plastic by exposing it to a lower temperature than its melting point for few hours. I plan to melt the plastic into a liquid and pour it into a mold. For the mold i will use 2 fire resistant pipes,and pour the plastic in the gap.
Are there any hazards to this,like toxic fumes?
Can i use 2 fire resistant pipes as a mold?
Is there a better way to dry the plastic?
If i forgot to ask something important please answer that too.
thank you for the answers.
