Anyone ever tried spraying shock cords with fire retardant?
Yes. I buy the tubular kevlar kind. I spray that shock cord right into my rockets.
I dont treat my nylon shockcords with anything, but i do put a strip of ductape on the 6-8" close to ejection charges
You know what he meant..
While I have never treated the shock cords, I have used a mixture of boric acid and borax dissolved in water to treat cotton canvas for use as chute protectors.
+1 on tubular nylon...I wrap 12"+ from the ejection charge with masking tape. Don't forget the portion that passes through the eye bolt. I have also used larger tubular kevlar around the nylon, but end up masking taping both ends anyway.
