Polymorph is one of a new generation of commercial polymers set to have a major impact on model making and prototyping. This polymer has all the characteristics of a tough ‘engineering’ material yet it fuses and becomes easily mouldable at 62°C. It can be heated with hot water or a hairdryer and moulded by hand to create prototypes and solve manufacturing problems. Uses for Polymorph include: • Moulding of handles and orthopaedic aids • Vacuum forming moulds • Moulds for batch producing other mouldings • Prototype mechanical parts • Armatures / frames for models • Inserts for compliant products • Specialised components, such as motor mountings • Moulding of complete products, such as torches • Joining components together
