I have some plastic optical fiber, which consists of a thin core of PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate), covered by a fluorinated polymer.
I would like to heat a bundle of these fibers to ~130 degrees, in order to form a simple image guide.
However, I won't start until I know this is safe. Can you help me find out what types of gases I may encounter by heating these materials? Anything known dangerous? What other safety precautions should I take?
