WONDERFLEX

The heat activated composite material, which contains its own adhesive, is often referred to as the “Celastic” replacement product. This pliable, scrim-reinforced extruded composite is a revolutionary new material, with a smooth surface on one side that can be molded or formed once it’s been heated.  Easily painted or decorated with a variety of artisan coatings, gessos, bondo and paints.  It has superior strength and flexibility, yet is remarkably lightweight. You’ll find it fabulous for headpieces, sub-structures, ornamental effects, masks, props, scenic materials and a whole lot more.

Because it’s so tough and can be molded into any shape or thickness, it’s even ideal for making quick repairs or modifications. An oven, microwave, hot air gun or simply hot water may be used for activation. With a low activation temperature of 150°-170° F (70° – 80° C, WonderflexTM has a long open time and can be hand-worked or laid up for two or three minutes.  Just reheat repeatedly as required for additional forming. It works beautifully with or without molds and cuts with a utility knife or scissors. It bonds to itself  well and can be adhered to most porous materials like paper, wood, fabric, foams and FosshapeTM.

FOSSHAPE 300

Often called the “buckram replacement”, this unique felt-like fabric (45″ wide or 114.3 cm) is heat activated to achieve rigidity, stiffness and surface enhancement without the use of water, messy or hazardous additives.  Synthetic FOSSHAPETM can easily be cut with scissors, will not fray like conventional woven fabrics and can be readily sewn to itself or other fabrics as a hidden stiffener or shaped into stand alone structures. Mildew resistant and dye-able as well. Fabric steamers are the often preferred method for forming a desired amount of rigidity and stiffness, but conventional steam irons or an industrial hot air gun may oftentimes be helpful. The level of stiffness is achieved by adjusting heat, time and pressure.  Applications include: costuming, lightweight crafted reinforcement, theater props and set design, craft-work, puppetry, millinery headpieces, masks, sculptures, museum mount making and more.  Versatile FOSSHAPE 300 is lighter in weight  and thinner than FOSSHAPE 600 for lighter weight needs and more intricate design efforts.  With heat and pressure from a steam iron, two layers of  the 300 grade can be combined or bonded to approximate one layer of FOSSHAPE 600.
