Answer to: What if I ran Tyvek through the printer: Don’t do it. I have a desk top toner copier. The toner gets set with heat. Heat melts Tyvek.
On the Left hand side is painted Tyvek before print experiment. The right side is what survived the punishing heat of office machine hell. If you click on the photo, you will get a larger view. You may be able to see the meltly edge. Now I know how to take apart the machine, and how tiny melted pieces of Tyvek can become.
One What If answered, 8 million to go – yeahhoo! Now, what if I ran Tyvek through an ink jet…..
June 15th update: The Tyvek did survive printing through an ink jet printer. However, the printer went berserk shortly afterwards and is not fixable. It was an old printer with long standing problems. So coincidence? or my Tyvek curse? michele
