Tip 1: How to bend plastic pipe

When making designs of plastic products often have to bend the elements, giving them the desired configuration.For bending such articles there are several ways.Selection of a particular method depends on at your disposal tools and the required accuracy.To bend, for example, plastic pipes need to influence it thermally.
you need
  • - molding machine;
  • - fiberboard;
  • - silicone;
  • - template;
  • - gas burner;
  • - Construction hairdryer.
Guide
1
To make the desired shape of pipe polystyrene pre-fabricate frame of fiberboard.Collect form, in accordance with the length of the pipe and its diameter.After fitting the frame carefully treat it with sandpaper.
2
on molding machines fabricate silicone shell for plastic parts.She will need to secure the tube on the rim and protect the plastic surfaces against scratches, chips and dents.
3
Insert plastic tube the shell.Secure the product in the frame of fiberboard.Place the entire structure on the molding machine.After heating the plastic so
ftens and begins to face down onto the rim.This article will take a curved shape required.Wait about ten minutes before release pipe .Now the product can be removed from the mandrel and leave to cool.
4
In the absence of a molding machine, use a hair dryer or building a gas burner.Pre-fabricate a template that will fit the shape of the future bent pipe.It is desirable to avoid plastic bending with sharp corners, so the pattern must have a smooth bend across its entire surface.
5
Schedule a place bending pipe.Place heater on the location of intended bending.At the same time, make sure that the distance from the heat source to the product was too small to prevent the ignition of plastic.
6
Continuing work on tube dryer or a burner, slowly rotate pipe axis.When the plastic is soft and pliable, place it on a pre-existing template and bend, bringing the bend to the desired angle.Comply with the patience and precision that could not break the product.Hold the bent pipe on the template as long as it cools.The hardened plastic, remove the template and use as directed.

Tip 2: How to bend the strip

When making repairs in the apartment often have to mount the various elements in the form of plasterboard.In such cases it is necessary to bend the drywall.There are several ways to bend the material selection in each case determined by the thickness of the sheet, the complexity of the shape and the presence of suitable hand tools.
How to bend the strip
you need
  • - strip of drywall;
  • - a sharp knife;
  • - special roller (hammer);
  • - water;
  • - clean rags.
Guide
1
Prepare drywall strip you want to bend.The larger the bending radius, the easier it is to bend the strip .Broad band flexing harder than narrow.Sometimes it is better to share a single wide band two or three narrow, and then mount them separately, plastered joints.
2
easiest way to give the material the desired shape when it comes to creating concave surfaces;convexity deliver more trouble.Lean plate of plasterboard to the right place and slowly push it into the cavity.This secures the ends of the strip Assistant screws.The workpiece is then fastened over substantially its entire length.
3
When finishing drywall fix convex forms strip in only one place, and then step by step, stage by stage, and gradually bend strip, attaching it as changing the shape.
4
more complicated with small radius bends.No advance preparation is easy to break the streak .Pre-make the reverse side of the sheet small slit at a distance of 4-5 cm from each other.The cuts should not be too deep, so that the drywall is not broken, and part of the material must be securely connected to each other.
5
When bending of large area bands drywall will need a special roller with spikes (hammer).The surface of the material in the place to bend slightly moisten, propped up with wet rags.Now go to the place of the fold roller that at this point there were small holes.Then gradually bend the sheet, trying to give it the desired curvature. curved strip fit in the right place, firmly attaching to the base.
6
Mounting a curved sheet, follow the step sequence.Do not wait until the bent one of the methods described band "harden" taking shape.Attach the drywall to the bottom right, is a place bending still wet and pliable.If you do not meet this condition, there may be a material breaks.Proceed slowly, avoiding sudden changes in the structure of the material.
