Thermo Pellets

  • 1 and 3 pound packages
  • Low-temperature thermoplastic pellets mold together quickly and easily to adapt handles and equipment.
  • The pellets can be used to build up handles. When heated to 140 degrees F, 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.
