They look a lot like sushi rice, but don’t eat ’em – these are Low Temperature Thermoplastic Beads! Also known as “Friendly Plastic”, “Instamorph”, “Polymorph” and many other names.
These 100g bags are full of ivory-colored polymorph plastic beads with a low melting point of about 60°C (140°F). Heat up some water with a kettle or microwave, then dump the beads in. They’ll turn clear and start sticking together into a wax-like blob. You can then knead, mold and shaped the blob by hand and left to harden. Once hardened, it has the feel and durability of polyethelene and a translucent white color. Don’t like the shape? Simply place it back into hot water, it will soften and you can re-shape it as many times as you like!
This is the ultimate plastic in versatility! Kind of lying somewhere between 3D Filament and Sugru. Make custom repair parts, tools, handles, prototypes, props or crafts, and much more. We’re selling them in 100 gram bags which is just enough for most robotics, electronics or craft projects.
This plastic is non-toxic, lead free, biodegradable, and best of all reusable by just heating it back up again!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
