Plastic that turns to clay when heated
A specialist developer of polyurethane resins and resin products, markets haplafreely, a plastic that turns to clay when heated to temperatures above 60°C.
When immersed in hot water or heated with a heat gun, the plastic becomes easy to shape, and hardens again as it cools, starting from around 40°C and returning to its original hardness by the time it reaches room temperature.
It is softer than other plastics, and when used as a cover material, will not damage the product to which it is applied. It can be formed into a variety of different shapes, without the need for thermal design or processing. When heated, it will return to clay time and time again, making it ideal as a way of reducing costs in production line jigs.
The next step is to develop the material in order to get a different mold temperature range .
