Is it safe to melt polycarbonate? Answered
I'm interested in trying to do something with the dozens of old CD's and DVD's. I was thinking of trying to melt the polycarbonate and shape it while it's Pliable.
I understand polycarbonate melts at around 150 degrees C, so it's possible to melt in an oven, but is it safe? Will it release any toxic fumes, or does it only vent at higher temps?
Also, will it deform\shrink as it cools, or will it hold it's shape?
