    bend acrylic not use strip heaters... jfyi... but dun tell u which 1 leh...

    anyway, depends on the budget, and also the length of the heater u need, shortest length is about 21" length, to about my max length i can produce is 4metres (think u won't find such long acrylic anyway... u'll just need a thermostat control, if feeling rich or doing 'precise' digital controllers can be used. Dun have to use high temp ones, acrylic u dun melt them, u just soften them then bend. sometimes mix & match, do your own DIY, price is below 100-200.

    Follow my style la, DIY at home. Tried before no problem. Unless you mass production at home.

    Find 2 solid piece of tiles that withstand heat and put parallel leaving a small gap on the stove. Tada...your strip heater.

    thats the ultimate wrong place to go dude... u'll be most likely getting old stocks or wrong power rating ones... due to high humidity in sg, sometimes old stock will have leakage problem.

    if u place it near, it will, cos fire is hard to control hence use heater, u dun have to use high temperature to soften acrylic. bare flame from gas is about 600-800degree C, so u put if further away its ok. For heaters, you can use temperature controllers to maintain temperature to about 120-180degree C.

    I've tested, the paper does not catch fire, sometimes when bending it may stretch and tear, thats all... u can even put the entire piece into the oven and soften it, then place into a mold to form shapes.

    anyway my line is make heaters, not acrylic, haha... so i play acrylic for fun only... dun quote me...

    I also leave the paper on. Better, since during process can prevent handling scratches, the paper can draw lines and markings. When everything finish then remove paper...all sui sui!


    DCA "watlow"???

    another advantage of putting paper on is to prevent discoloration from burning... but over burning kinda discoloration is just too bad...
