What can I do with polymorph?
Polymorph is a great commercial polymer that has many applications and with this 500g 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 for a model chair. I needed a great quantity of polymorph for a model chair I was making for my Product Design As level and all I can say is that it really exceeded my expectations. I needed it to mold some armrests for my 1:5 scale chair and it worked very nicely. It was easy to use, no complicated machines or equipment were required, I could just use some hot water from and kettle and mold. The great thing about it is that if you go wrong or can't get the right shape you need it's just a case of softening the polymorph in some more hot water and reforming it. Very good product, would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this recently to use for holding my jewellery pieces while I set stones into them and it works really well. It's great to have a product which does not need a high temperature to make it workable.
