Silicon Insert Issues

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i'm bending some acrylic (16mm OD) and i had a situation where 2 bends were too close together. as im pulling the insert out it snaps and now a piece of the insert is stuck (basically it's become trash).

the issue however is that the leftover piece of insert is not long enough for the remaining bends and i actually dont think the full 12" piece would have been either.

im looking on PPC at various inserts and A) when they say "sold by the foot" on a listing does that mean if i add 2 to cart im getting a 24" piece or 2 12" pieces? and B) does anyone have any experience with the alphacool bending insert 13mm? (assuming that would fit 16mm OD acrylic).

Are you talking about the bending tools used for 180, 90, 45, and 30 degree bends? Or are you referring to acrylic rods?

For bending forms, I use the Monsoon Cooling forms. Monsoon Bending Kit for 16 mm

For acrylic rods, I sourced mine from McMaster Carr. Acrylic Tubing @ McMaster-Carr

i already have a monsoon bending kit from previous builds... im only talking about the silicone insert (monsoon red insert) that goes into the acrylic before heating and bending. mine broke, but it wasn't long enough to do the bends i need anyways so i need help finding another (longer) insert.

What's the ID of the tubing?  11.7m silicon insert is for 12mm and for 10mm you need  9.4mm silicon insert.   As far as buying 2 of 1-foot tubing im guessing it wouldn't be connected.  

 

Im guessing you have PETG Tube 12/16mm, in which cas you need a 11.7mm insert.

I don't see why PPC would be selling an infinite number of 1 foot inserts, but I would call them to be sure you are getting the footage desired.

You'd be getting a continuous silicone insert. So if you order (2) 12" insert, its 24" in total length.
