I think this is very cool.
Have anybody used this before?
With InstaForm you can fix or make anything, well almost. InstaForm is far too versatile for us to describe each and every possible application, your imagination is your limit.

InstaForm pellets are added to water from 60 degrees C upward, once they become transparent, they can then be removed from the water and formed into any shape you wish. Once the InstaForm cools, it returns to white in colour and is as rigid as any injection moulded plastic.

InstaForm is ideal for off roaders, fixing a bracket, plugging a hole even making a spanner.

Please visit youtube or Google, where if you search “mouldable plastic” you will find videos and pics of what people have used the product for.

MOST important to note is that it is 100% re-useable. If you are not happy with your first attempt, maybe the fit is not as tight as you want it to be etc, just chuck it back in the hot water, wait for it to become clear and start again. Once you have replaced the part, just put it in the jar till next time.

I will get it soon, first wanted to test the response. What I like about it, is that you need heat to form it.

I have one of those kids with the black powder and super glue in my bakkie for emergencies, but I nether used it and the two times I did need it the glue were hard, so it was useless.

I think depending on the strength this might be a better solution

Looks very interesting.What kind of a price are you going to pay for it. Making moulds for fiberglass work would be so much easier.

I bought some of this at Mica Hardware some years ago and it works very well. What is nice is you can reheat whatever you moulded and re-use the product over and over. Once it sets it is quite hard and you can work it with a Dremel or file if you need to

I will find out about price and colour. I know what the wholesale price is but need to know what a fair retail price is. Will post it as soon as I get feedback.

He says you can use any powder pigment to colour it any colour you want.

It will retail for R90.00 for a 150g bottle.
