Ti sheet
Titanium Joe (google this) is a good source I've used. As others said, standard tin snips work well for cutting Ti foils. Heavy scissors will cut anything thinner than 0.005", but you'...

Fabric
Marc, actually, I tried using heat to weld a TPU valve to the 30D heat sealable nylon from Seattle Fabrics. It didn't work well. I suspect that the TPU of the valve has a different softening te...
