MC006 Reusable Prototyping Polymorph Plastic low melting temperature of about 60°C

Overview

Features

  • Polymorph (Polycaprolactone) is non-toxic, biodegradable polyester with a low melting temperature of about 60°C (140°F)
  • Prototype plastic parts can be made by simply heating in hot water until it is clear and then shaping by hand
  • When cool it becomes nylon like white plastic
  • Polymorph can be re-used by simply re-heating and re-shaping
  • Plastic beads supplied in a re-usable plastic container
  • Although expensive, polymorph is suitable for 3D modelling as it can be shaped by hand or pressed into a shape through the use of a mould
  • 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 modelling
  • Repair of plastic objects
