Does anyone know how cold temperature might affect the effectiveness of IPA at dissolving resin?
I’ve always washed my parts at room temperature, but the 3L wash kit is very large (apparently it fills to 10 gallons, even though the max build volume of the printer is around half that).
I’m considering keeping it outside. With winter here, that means it’ll be subject to freezing temperatures. Over the year it might range between -15°C (5°F) and 25°C (77°F), with much of that being around 0°C (32°F) in the winter months.
I’m not worried about the IPA itself freezing (I think pure IPA freezes around -89°C / 128°F) but I’m uncertain how it might affect wash times. Has anyone rinsed parts in cold IPA?
I also realize subjecting parts to sudden temperature changes (e.g. straight from printer into a sub-zero bath) could induce some internal stress.
Appreciate hearing your thoughts on this.
