I haven’t played with High Temp resin yet. I have an application which might benefit from it - it’s a prototype bracket for a headlamp, which needs to withstand very high ambient heat. Thing is, one side of the lamp has to snap-fit into the bracket. It works like a champ in Tough, but I understand High Temp is one of the most brittle resins in the lineup.
Subjectively speaking, do you get any give with the stuff?
Does the trick of heating with a heat gun to help ease in snap fits work at all?
Appreciate any feedback from people who’ve had their hands on the stuff. Happy to share a model and pay for resin if someone is willing to run me a sample part.
In case details help me get a better answer to my question… the hole diameter where the “lamp axle” will snap into is about 9.6mm, wall thickness of the flange is 3.1mm, and presently I’m using an opening about 6mm large. So right now I’m subjecting each “prong” to around 1.6mm of deformation during insertion. Easy to reduce that for a more rigid material, as long as it won’t fall out!
