What can I do with polymorph?
Polymorph is a great commercial polymer that has many applications and with this 150g container you can create whatever you need. The plastic comes as solid pellets but when submerged in water of 62 degree Celsius or hotter or under a hairdryer at a similar temperature it fuses and becomes malleable. You can then form many shapes from frames and skeletons for models to easier to hold cutlery handles. You can also use polymorph as a mound by using it to take an impression then waiting for it to harden as it cools and use it to reproduce the image. The material is nontoxic and waterproof when cooled and is fully biodegradable.

How does it work?
When hot the polymorph is a flexible, easily to mould plastic which sets as it cools. When cooled it becomes very similar to nylon and is stiffer, stronger and tougher than most domestically used plastics. Polymorph is a thermoplastic material and can be reheated and remoulded as often as is needed. When you have a design you would like to keep the plastic can be painted using acrylic paints.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Polymorph Works well and did the job as expected. good results.
