I have a bare pendrive, wish to make a concrete case for it because i love that grey stuff. To my understanding concrete is somewhat conductive. How do i insulate it cheaply? I think duct tape is out of question because the wet solution may get under it.
Unless he uses silicone instead of epoxy, which will allow for shrinkage, though that would imply shrinkage is the main problem at this scale.
My concern would simply be fractures due to dropping or other mishandling, concrete (or more accurately, cement, unless OP is planning on mixing gravel and sand into his shell) that thin might be kind of brittle. It may be possible to fold a thin strip of flyscreen around the stick (over the silicone) to act as reinforcement. Even if the cement cracks it won't fall apart.
Try some plaster of Paris. That shit feels like lightweight marble, sandable, and you can ale the color . but generates heat as it sets, but it's short lived and I dint you wild notice any issues with shrinkage. Keep your dick/dickbeaters away from that stuff though... It's not the kind of material for casting body parts.
>because covering an already-insulated fucking $3 pen drive in fucking concrete would be too easy.
>has to be OPs special snowflake uncovered 3-fucking-dollar pen drive that gets covered in concrete
>how do I cover my uncovered pendrive, so I can cover it in fucking concrete?
>b-but I want *THIS* fucking *uncovered* pendrive, but cobbered in stuffz, then cobbered in concretz, for fuck almighty alone knows why, it has all my stuffz on it..
- Jesus Fucking Wept. Gimme your address bro, send you an industrial roll of shrinkwrap+disposable lighter. Time your done applying that shit, your pendrive survive a Jimmy Hoffa scale application of fucking concrete.
Thank you for all your suggestions, i went with generous amount of a regular plastic wrap and some strong cement. I think you call it Portland cement in the states. Day three, no shrinkage. Not counting limp dicks of some of the memers here of course.
Btw i found it in some box, it's not like i bought a new fucking flash drive to disassemble you absolute autist.
