Polycaprolactone is a biodegradable polyester being sold unter various tradenames such as „Protoplast“ , „InstaMorph“ , „ShapeLock“ , „PolyMorph“ , „Plaast“ , etc. The material feels like a tough, nylon-like plastic and melts to a putty-like consistence at only 60 degrees, easily achieved with hot water or air. It sticks to many other plastics and is famous in the hobbyist market for small scale modeling, part fabrication, repairing or rapid prototyping.
MAKE. presents Polycaprolactone during this year's World Cup. Sample packs are freely available for all BURG students as long as our stock lasts. Please see www.burg-halle.de/make for more information and its material distribution date.
Material of the Month
The „Material of the Month“ project is where MAKE. frequently inspires with new or unconsidered materials by making it freely available for BURG's creative students. The only condition for participation is providing us with a small presentation to document and share the ideas and experiments which have been made with the sponsored material.
