[BKARTS] Tyvek, Pellon and such

Please do not heat tyvek with an iron or heat gun like the rubber stampers do. Dupont, the makers, are rather strong in their warnings not to do that. When you heat Tyvek to its melting point apparently you release potentially toxic fumes. And, no it doesn't smell, but then neither does natural gas. Just remember the rotten egg smell is added by man so you can smell if there is a leak in or around your house. Be very careful around plastics when you melt them. Most, though not all, release fumes that can be toxic when heated to their melting points.
