You have to see this stuff. It is so cool.
It is a biodegradable plastic (like nylon) that has a low glass transition temperature meaning that it get soft and pliable like putty at around 180 deg F. It stiffens at room temperature and it’s colorable. I hear it’s paintable but I need to do some experiments.
- Can use hot water to melt it
- Use scissors to cut it when warm
- Use a Dremel tool when cold
How it works
