Fixing the world with a pocket sized, meltable bio-plastic
13 June 2016
Peter Marigold has designed FORMcard, a pocket sized card of strong, meltable bio-plastic that, once dropped in hot water, can mould the world around you.
The FORMcards are instant, when cooled they are ready to use to fix things in emergency situations. Examples include when a handle breaks on a tool or a button falls off a piece of clothing. The cards are strong like nylon but not rubbery so they can be used for life-long situations.
The cards are also reusable, so if you make a mistake you can simply melt it back down. A perfect material to use for making toys for children or even fixing broken ones as the cards stick to other plastics when they are extremely hot.
FORMcards are made from a starch based bio-plastic that is non-toxic and they are produced within the UK.
Peter Marigold believes that this material has a place in everyone’s kitchen drawer, tool box or back pack and even compared it to similar materials such as Blu-tack or Selotape. This is why is has been designed in a flat card form, so it is easy to store and the size and thickness of the card is perfect for the quick fix types..
