Thermo-Pellets 1 # NC32511 for custom handles


1 and 3 pound packages

Low-temperature thermoplastic pellets mold together quickly and easily to adapt handles, splints and equipment. The pellets can be used to build up handles. When heated to 140 degrees F (60 degree C), pellets soften quickly and can be formed into a mass that can be molded and remolded as needed. Heat in water, on a heating plate or in a microwave oven. The thermoplastic will stick to most porous surfaces.
