More info

Polymorph is a revolutionary thermoplastic, set to have a major impact on model making and prototyping. When formed, it has all the characteristics of a tough ‘engineering’ material yet it fuses and becomes easily mouldable at just 62°C. It can be heated with hot water or a hair dryer and moulded by hand to create prototypes and solve manufacturing problems currently outside the capacity of other materials. Polymorph can be remelted and used over and over again.

Features:

  • This is1kg polymorph
  • Available in different weights (on request) 
  • Revolutionary plastic that melts in hot water and can be moulded by hand
  • Non-toxic, biodegradable polyester thermoplastic
  • Hardens as it cools - similar strength as nylon and retains suitable flexibilty without easily cracking under pressure
  • Becomes easily mouldable at just 62C, so placing granules in a beaker of boiled water will melt it
  • Not satisfied with your molding - just remelt it and start again!


Uses:

  • Rapid prototyping
  • Fabrication of mechanical parts Armatures/frames for models
  • Specialised components - e.g. motor mountings
  • Joining components together
  • Mouldings for handles & orthopaedic aids
  • Vacuum forming moulds
  • Can be pressed into sheets and rolled into rods
  • Small-scale modeling
  • Repair of plastic objects


Specifications:

  • Density(g/cm3 , 25 C) Approximately 1.10
  • Melting point is 60-63C and can be shaped in low temperature


Warnings:

  • Do not overheat - this will not increase it's properties but will increase the risk of burning yourself
  • CO2 and H2O will be released after 6-12 months, so it may not be suitable for permanent solutions
  • When sealed please stock it far away from fire sources and children. Always take caution, as it can burn you - make sure that when melted it is at a comfortable temperature before handling.
