Unread postAuthor: bigbob12345 » Fri Dec 14, 2007 8:02 pm

Okay me and some other guys where thinking about going on a potato gun outing this weekend and it will be about 35 degrees farenheit and I was wondering if the pvc might get brittle they would be in that tempeture for about 8 hours is it safe to continue using them as normal.

Geez, there have been enough topics on this, but anyway...

For 8 hours, at 35<sup>o</sup>F, I would say almost certainly not. They might hold that day, but you might damage them so that another day they'll fail then instead.

A search for the words "PVC brittle cold" in the discussion area gave these results. This search took literally 10 seconds to make.

I'm just going to copy this message and paste it every time someone asks because it's getting freaking annoying after like the 10th time.

I tried to take a fitting out of a socket, because I was testing the fit, and it got stuck. The temperature was about 55. It cracked, violently, when I hit it with a rubber mallet to knock it out. I've done the same thing a lot during summer, and have never had a crack. Play it safe, and wait for better weather.
