What is InstaMorph?

InstaMorph is an non-toxic, lightweight polyester thermoplastic (woah, that’s a mouthful!). That didn’t help? Ok, how about we tell you some of the properties of InstaMorph that we think you’ll like.

Works at low temperatures

InstaMorph becomes moldable at a relatively low temperature (66°C / 150°F) and solidifies at room temperature. This property alone make it ideal for use for lots of projects and skill levels.

Reheat & remold again & again

InstaMorph can be remolded again and again simply by reheating it. Make a mistake? No problem! Want to tweak it a bit? Just reheat it!

No special tools or activators are needed

No messy chemicals here. Just heat InstaMorph in hot water, in the oven, or using heat gun and mold it with your hands (be careful there) or any other tools you might have. See the instructions on using InstaMorph for more detailed information.

Can be painted, dyed, machined, carved and stuck

The possibilities are endless! InstaMorph even has it’s own specially formulated pigment coloring pellets to help you dye your white InstaMorph into any color you desire. InstaMorph doesn’t stick to much, but will readily bond to some other plastics like ABS (think Lego bricks), acrylic, polycarbonate, polyester, PVC, and vinyl plastics.
