2016-01-11 (M) Acetone Vapor Bath Experiment

The same steps used for the 8in^2 test were repeated for the 16in^2 test. Using the same procedure was important for repeatability. Fortunately the amount of acetone delivered by these tests has been enough to show visibly noticeable changes from one test to another.

After vapor bathing for four hours the parts were examined but their integrity was very low. Their basic shape was intact but they were extremely pliable. A short narrated video was made which said they seemed “soggy.”

Sorry for the portrait orientation

Side-by-side comparisons of the processed parts had to wait until the recently bathed parts had time to solidify again. They were allowed to sit in a room with an exhaust fan for eight hours while the acetone evaporated.
