Can we melt vinyl records safely outdoors as a Science Festival?

Question asked by Matthew Fisher on Mar 15, 2019

Good afternoon.  We are working on developing some activities for our upcoming Science Festival and one of our students has an idea to transform old vinyl records into works of art using a heat gun.  We would be conducting this activity outdoors by using a heat gun to warm up vinyl records over ceramic bowls molds to form a new bowl.


Our concern is the gases that it will release.  Is this dangerous for the public to participate in?  Will it be dangerous for the environment?


Thanks for the insight.
