    Boil Carbon Fiber Strap

    Hi,
    Can you boil a carbon fiber strap like the one on my Mudman 9300?

    I would not "boil" any of the straps. "Simmer" is a better choice and no I am not saying that to be funny. I have simmered some resin parts to soften them. But I prefer 2 cups of water in a glass Pyrex measuring cup microwaved on high for 4 to 5 minutes. It gets super hot and the resin can be worked without any issues of splattering hot water.

    Now as far as the resin covered carbon fiber, I'm not sure how it would react to 200+ temperatures.

    Of COURSE you can boil it!! You can boil darn near ANYthing! (of course, no guarantee what condition it will be in when boiling stops!)


    *** This question reminds me of a scene from an old "Pink Panther" Peter Seller's movie, in which Clouseau walks into a hotel lobby and there's an old guy behind a small desk, and a small dog on the floor. Clouseau asks the guy -- "Does your dug bite?" The guy shakes his head no. Clouseau proceeds to pet the dog, which nearly bites off his hand! Clouseau says to the old man in an angry voice, "I thought you said your dug does not bite?!" The old guy replies, "That is not my dug..."!!

    Thanks! Now I'm going to end up spending hours looking at classic Clouseau clips.
    My two favorite movies are "The Pink Panther" and "A shot in the Dark"

    if you dont leave it in there for an hour on rapid boil im sure it will be fine. i did it with my 9000 muddy to clean and soften it and boiling did both. it was closer to a simmer than a boil tho, if youre doing it in a pot put something in the bottom so the resin doesnt touch the bottom of the pot directly, i used a metal cookie cutter (:

    Are you suggesting the OP to put his watch into the microwave? LOL

    Sorry, Let me clarify.
    I heat up the water first without the resin in it. Take the measuring cup out and then put the resin in the cup and let it sit for a few minutes. The bottom of the measuring cup maintains the shape I wish to have on my straps. It has worked for me very well on various models.
