Classroom Materials
 
Cold Forming Plastic

This plastic looks just like acrylic but has a toughness approaching polycarbonate and can be permanently formed into shape without heating. It is also a shape-memory polymer since it will return to its original flat form on application of moderate heat – e.g., immersion in very hot water.

It can be bend by hand or using sheet metal folding equipment. (Alternatively, the sheet can be thermo-formed using conventional heating methods).

Bending this material makes a great demonstration of a new type of polymer that can be used safely without heat.

It comes as a 3mm thick optically clear sheet indistinguishable from clear acrylic.
