What can the smart putty do?

Soft and flowing, bouncy and elastic this putty is fascinating. With its thermochromic make up the putty changes from an orange colour at room temperature (usually 18-21°C) to yellow in your hands. Stretch the putty slowly or snap it quick, bounce the putty on a surface or smash it with a sudden impact then find out why.

What can this teach?

Non-Newtonian fluids are a type of material that acts like a fluid when moved slowly and like a solid when impacted or moved quickly. The putty (233-050), properly known as visco-elastic polymer or dilatant compound, is perfect for demonstrating to a class or with 500g can be split into smaller amounts to experiment with.
