Tyvek and alcohol?
    #4571744 - 08/23/05 07:20 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Anyone know if tyvek can be wiped down with alcohol prior to injecting?

Will the alcohol break down whatever holds the stuff together?

Anybody have experience or do this regularly--foaf usually uses polyfil but was screwing around with tyvek, already cooked 7 quarts with no lid, just tyvek and the band....

He dried the tyvek and inside of the foil covering with a paper towel so tape would stick upon injection, but now is concerned about sterility....

...any suggestions? Band-aids don't seem like they'd be too reliable...

rubbing alcohol/isopropanol is soooo weak chemically that it certainly won't effect HDPE fibers. Tyvek is used as a protective packaging for a reason.

It should be fine, just don't let the alcohol pool up up on the tyvek.
