Jett Basic Thermoplastic compound

Jett Basic is a unique, easy-to-use compound formulated from an advanced thermoplastic material. It is a plastic vice and fixturing compound used to hold parts, make molds, textures, drying forms, and custom stamping tools. Quick to set, non-toxic, biodegradable and versatile, it will not stick to, scratch or damage metal parts and can be re-softened and used again and again. This product is formulated to have some spring or rebound to it, so it's the perfect material for creating custom grips on your favorite tools. It picks up very fine details, so it makes a good molding material, but it will require a release. Inexpensive and fun to use.
