Anyone Use Flex Seal?

Postby marauder » Mon Oct 17, 2016 10:04 am

This stuff looks awesome - http://flexsealproducts.com/product/liquid/

My initial thought was that we could perhaps make thinner, lighter parts for our blasters. I'm not sure how well it would hold up to pressure, but at least this would be a quick way to mold non pressurized parts.

I was thinking of using it as an alternative K-mod method for spherical bladders but I'm not sure if it has enough elasticity.

^I know it was brought up before. Basically a spray-on K-mod. You'd put one balloon over the PC and spray that stuff on it. I don't think anyone actually did it though.

As for making parts, you'd need some kind of mold first, no? I'd think that 3D printing would work better if you had access to it. This stuff could perhaps be used to cover reservoir leaks, but those are rare. For pressurized components, it's definitely a better idea to go with water weld or marine epoxy or something.

Also, "as seen on TV" products tend to be rather untrustworthy, haha.

I think I'm going to ask for this as a gag gift for Christmas and then just mess around with it. I feel like it has to be at least somewhat useful.
