Polymorph - 1000g

35.75 €35.75

Availability: Retired

Description: Polymorph is a non-toxic, biodegradable polyester with a low melting temperature of about 60C (140F). Prototype plastic parts can be made by simply heating the plastic beads in hot water until they turn clear and then kneading them together and shaping by hand. When it cools it becomes a nylon-like white plastic. Polymorph can be re-used by simply re-heating and re-shaping. Plastic beads are supplied in a re-usable plastic container.

So what do you do with it? Robotics, small-parts prototyping, arts/crafts, there's almost no end to what you can do with this stuff. We had a blast playing with it here at SparkFun. Try embedding LEDs into it for a cool diffuse glow effect.

Note: This no longer comes in the plastic containers, sorry! We will update the pictures.

Note: Although Polymorph melts at around 60C (140F), it is more workable at hotter temperatures around 180-200F.

Weight: 1000g

Features:

  • Non-toxic, biodegradable polyester
  • Low melting temperature of about 60C (140F)
  • Useful for many type of robots
  • Can be melted and re-used over and over
  • Supplied in a re-usable plastic container
