I bought a 500 gram container of shapelock its a nylon like plastic that melts at 60 degees celcius. Thing is at around $1.40 an ounce its really pricey to buy several pounds of it. Anyone know where to buy a 50 pound bag? The "shape lock" plastic is likely the same thing as "polymorph plastic".
The chemical properties of polymorph plasic are similar to polycaprolactone according to this website...
What I want is a material that can be reused easily by reheating in a crockpot and pouring into mold "blanks" for use on my mini mill much like I do with parafin wax. This material would be stronger and have much less thermal expansion if it can be used that way. I am sure it would never get to water like consistency tho =<
I have it in my head that a 50 pound bag or 2 would be relatively cheap compared to the $1000+ it would cost me buying 500g containers of shapelock.
...I am still looking for the right material but so far this is the best.
