You are watching: How much heat can plexiglass withstand


Hey males I"m installing a Aquamist water injection setup and also I"m making a practice water tank to fit where old airbox supplied to be. Can plexiglass withstand also 180-200 degree engine temps? I know to make sure to usage a correct epoxy that will certainly host up, yet I"m wondering around the plexiglass itself.Thanks-Josh

Not sure about plexi-glass, but if you deserve to work-related via lexan, I understand that will. But then aacquire, lexan may be plexi-glass...

Anyways, my heat shield is made from lexan and also it does a wonderful project of withstanding the warm and also also stays cool.
Re: Can plexiglass withstand engine temperatures? (surefooted)
I think plexiglass will certainly melt....I remember we used to bend plexiglass right into picture frames in lumber shop and we don"t also heat them up that high. Not sure though....possibly it was some various other product....
Re: Can plexiglass withstand also engine temperatures? (Nessal)
I vote that it will melt. When drilling or shaping the stuff you have to run a low tool rate or it simply melts and gums up your blades. Suspect that an engine bay would kill it.
Re: Can plexiglass withstand engine temperatures? (TooLFan46n2)
It will certainly melt. Seek and also different product to usage. If you deserve to discover sheets of ABS plastic that MIGHT work....again warm will be the worry and the bonding agent you usage will have to be warmth tollerable. excellent luck.

Re: Can plexiglass withstand also engine temperatures? (mr_e1974)Lexan is a Polycarbonate, likewise, the headlight lens are also COMPUTER.Plexiglas is an acrylic polymer.Maximum Service Temperature, Air 132 °C/ 270 °F (Lexan)Maximum Service Temperature, Air 74 - 88 °C/ 165 - 190 °F (Plexiglas)You"re better off using Lexan considering that the engine operating temperature is 190°F, according to my TDI"s thermostat.
Re: Can plexiglass withstand engine temperatures? (converted_vw)
Hmm lot of good points. I guess I will certainly need to find some lexan. Does Home Depot carry it? My buddy states plexiglass will occupational yet I"m not taking the chance, especially when the charger throws off so much warmth in the summer.

it"s not a jeep...and also as well all know only jeep lovers, love diamond plate...lord knows i do!!!!currently where"s my jeep???
Re: Can plexiglass withstand engine temperatures? (VR6Stress)We did a test now by putting the plexiglass in the range
200 degrees. It took around 30 mins for it to begin to bend. I"m going to most likely make the plexiglass one for now so I can hook up the water. I will then make one from Lexan just to be safe. I don"t think heat will certainly be an issue at all for the winter, however can probably in the summer.

Re: Can plexiglass withstand engine temperatures? (TooLFan46n2)
GoFaster has a setup favor that. The engine bay not close to the engine does not obtain all that hot, absolutely not 200°F. And the exterior of the engine is cooler than the coolant, so it"s at much less than 190°F anymeans.
