Using 4"x 125' Parafilm on Petris?
    #939550 - 10/07/02 12:50 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I was told that this was the best for sealing petris by the people at MYco Supply.
I just received my package, and im stumped. How does a 4" wide strip of tape make sense for sealing petris? I may be stupid, but i thought parafilm should come in a roll about as wide as duct tape, or even electrical tape. How am i supposed to use this stuff economically?

thanks again,
H

Hi Heruuka,
Parafilm at 70?F, stretches 200% and returns partially to its original size. At 180?F to 200?F, it softens enough to make an adhesive bond.  So don't be afraid to stretch it!

Also, if you have a few dishes, stack them up and wrap all of them together. 

If you need any help feel free to PM me :smile:

Lana
