What kind of plastic are filter patch bags made of?
    #1991574 - 10/09/03 12:11 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I need some kind of small (0.25") tubing that can be heat sealed. I tried doing it with bits of drinking straw but I could not get them airtight.

I'm trying to design a new method of distributing spores.

Nobody knows?

Maybe this should be moved to advanced.

Mycobag uses polypropylene(PP).

Polypropylene, the same as oven roasting bags :smile:

Polypropylene is most common but Cellophane could be used too.

What about aquatic air line tubing? I guess I'll have to try it and find out.

I just need something that can be sterilized and sealed with a cigarette lighter and a pair of pliers. What I want to do is to scrape off enough spores to make one light syringe (about 1/20 of a decent print) to hand out to people. Then they just take a syringe of sterile water, cut an end off the sealed tube, squirt some water into it and suck it back up.

Well, there's a polypropylene tubing used as packaging, but the smallest I've been able to find is 1"wide rolls.

After a few experiments with FP bags and drinking straws I've decided that drinking straws are probably the best vehicle for this method of distribution.


I'll try to have a tek for these "Pixie Packs" (so named because of their similarity to Pixie Stix) done in the next few days, but I imagine just about anyone could figure it out from just what I've described here.

Oven roasting bags are made from Nylon , not polypropylene.

That's a very nice link. I may have to try some of that too, but I think drinking straws should work well enough and are something that people tend to have just lying around.

I do what I can when I'm not too fucking pissed about people not using the search function, since a large percentage of the questions have already been answered.
