FORMcard is a handy, pocket sized card of strong, meltable bio-plastic that can be used to make, fix and modify many objects. FORMcards are instant, so when they’re cool, are ready to use and can fix things quickly in emergency situations, like when a handle breaks on a tool, or a button. It is strong like nylon, so it can be used for long lasting solutions. FORMcards are reusable, so can be melted back down again and be used for something else. Available in many colours and made from a starch based bio-plastic that is totally non-toxic. Once dropped in a cup of hot water, it’s ready to use. It takes about 2-3 minutes to become completely cool and can easily be reheated. The material sticks to plastic and wood, but not to metal, glass, or ceramics.
