SUPPLIER www.aquatuning.co.uk USEFUL FOR Bending acrylic sheet and tubing If you already own a heat gun for paint stripping, you can cross this item off your list as they’re the same. In the PC modding world, there are two uses for heat guns, both of which involve bending acrylic by heating it up so that it becomes pliable. The first method is to bend acrylic sheet, which requires a good ten minutes of sideways heating action along the line you need to bend, as well as the use of a bending jig to obtain sharp bends. The next method is used for acrylic or PETG rigid water-cooling tubing. The tubing needs to be heated in order to be bent, using any of the numerous bending tools and kits available from www.watercoolinguk.co.uk. Heat up the tubing gradually, as it’s very easy for bubbles to form inside it if it’s heated too quickly.
