Technical Data

AnyShape is a bio-degradable thermoplastic polymer (chemically denoted "polycaprolactone" or PCL) and is based on a chemical synthesis of crude oil. Even though AnyShape is not made from "green" raw materials it is still completely bio-degradable and non-toxic.

AnyShape is quite resistant to water, oil, solvents, and chlorine. AnyShape has a low melting point at 58-60° C and a low viscosity, so it is easy to process.
