Wonderflex to replace Celastic - earliners

Submitted by Luc S on 1/1/06 at 12:48 AM. ( ) 142.165.124.15

I recently came across a website that promoted a material called wonderflex TM. It is suppose to be a replacement material for celastic. The website indicated that wonderflex is much safer and easier to use than celastic, since no nasty solvents are required for activation, just heat. It is quoted as being " a heat activated composite material, which contains its own adhesive. It is a patented, pliable scrim-reinforced extruded composite that can be molded or formed once it's been heated.

Has anyone ever utilized this material for making earliners? If so, how does it work? What are its limitations?

The web site describes in detail this material and its uses; which included - taxidermy. I found this material advertised at www.cosplaysupplies.com/wonderflex/wonderflex.html

Celastic hasn't been sold by supply companies for years.What they are calling"Celastic" is actually a heat forming material like you describe,not the solvent activated stuff sold 15 or so years ago.The new stuff works great too.

Material is the name of the stuff that is heat activated that is sold by Jonas. Works as a good earliner but still needs an adhesive.
