Product Description


FORJ

FORJ

Forj, formerly known as Braeon, is a high strength, lightweight plastic ribbon that molecularly fuses to itself in a matter of seconds. Simply heat, press and repeat to form the plastic into any desired shape. Once cooled, the self-bonding plastic hardens, creating a bond as strong as steel.

TENSILE STRENGTH: Over 1,000 lbs

WEIGHT: 20ft of Forj is Less than 1lb


HOW IT WORKS:

  1. HEAT: Heat ribbon to 140°F or hotter to bend and mold Forj into desired shape. You can use hot water, a hair dryer, a heat gun, a microwave, open-flame or solar magnification.
  2. SHAPE: Once Forj becomes clear, the resin is hot enough to be shaped and adhere to itself to form a bond. As it cools and solidifies, it returns to white.
  3. FIX: Let your creation set for a few minutes. Once cooled, the lightweight material molecularly fuses to itself for a bond as strong as steel.
  4. REHEAT & REPEAT: If adjustments or additions are desired, simply reheat Forj. Forj can be reheated and reformed several times.

FEATURES:

  • Forj is available in a convenient tin, making it easy to carry. Throw Forj in your backpack before an adventure or store in a toolbox for future use.
  • Forj’s base materials do not pick up any moisture and will remain waterproof.
  • Forj’s molecules decouple, allowing you to mold, shape, and form into any desired shape. When cooling, the molecules recouple to create a high strength bond at the molecular level!
  • The chemical composition of Forj creates a surface that can be painted to match any desired color
  • Due to the nature of Forj’s polymers, the bond between molecules and layers gets stronger as the temperature drops.
  • Forj is a true composite material. We have combined an ultra-high strength thermoplastic fiber with a low temperature activated thermoplastic polymermatrix. Basically the thermoplastic polymermatrix keeps the thermoplastic fiber in place.
  • Forj is made with 100-year fiber and resin. If stored in its original container it will last 100+ yrs.
  • If exposed to an open flame for too long or exposed to temperatures over 250°F Forj can be flammable.
