Alright cats & kittens, I actually have a work related question for those who might work in a lab or industrial environment.
I routinely use a digital scale to measure various epoxies and similar materials. Unfortunately, I'm not the only one using these scales, and eventually they get encrusted with cured and semi-cured epoxy, as well as other sticky and gooey substances. I bought a new digital scale recently, and thought the solution would be to keep the scale in an oven bag or similar to keep them clean (since not spilling crap on them seems to be too difficult for some to grasp, as does cleaning them after use).
However, unless I am very carefull, the bag interferes with the tareing of the scales, sometimes throwing it off by several grams. For large batches of epoxy this isn't terribly critical, but for small batches it can be disastrous.
I could just do all the measuring myself, but that negates the advantages of having flunkies.
Any suggestions on how to overcome this problem?
