Hello Everyone !
Though machines aren’t build yet, i have bought an oven for 10€, and a themic scraper (sry not sure of the correct word), and have been using an iron to blend sheets of pallet wrap together.
What is amazing with that plastic is that you can directly do the welding with adapted temperature it is water proof & can hold almost 10kg without feeling it is breaking; also through that type of testing we realised that several layers of trash bags creates a sort of leather; further testing is on it’s way, will keep you posted !
@imuh Would love to see how you did this!! maybe a sequence of pictures
@plastikfantastik thanks ! we are going to make a little video explaining the process today 😉
here is the youtube link for the Tutorial video (sorry it is in french)
I will be working on the subtitles soon enough
(also sorry for the bad image/editing quality, this was my first shot at this)
Will try to do some more with different techniques !
ps: also here are 2 other different possible outputs
A backpack we created using the same technique; added a closing system with 2 little pieces of wood
@imuh Cool bags, I love the process I will give it try Thanks Nick!!!
This amazing idea! I must try, please tell me the paper you are using to iron over, is it parchment or can other paper such as newsprint or newspaper work just as well?
Thanks again for the share!!
@plastikfantastik & @mommamary23 i just got the translation for the type of paper i use ; it’s called “greaseproof paper”, doesn’t cost much and you can reuse the paper as long as you don’t make holes in it ! 😉 have fun trying out the techniques !!
Here is a much bigger backpack !!
The first one was filled in less than 5 minutes picking up plastic trash along the river closeby. The technique is a bit more developped.
Indeed we used a pattern as if it was cloth and then replaced the sewing by iron fusing
We are now trying to figure a way to use that new material as water protection for some wooden cases we have; will keep you posted !
Nice Bags !
Fortunately I didn’t throw away our iron, although we don’t iron our clothes anymore !
Thanks for the video !
