Material Holding - What is this Stuff?

Post by kayaker » Wed Apr 08, 2015 12:00 am

I looked in the wiki, but couldn't find that blue adhesive used in at least one of the Videos to hold thin metal to the waste board. It is a solld melted with a heat gun. Looks like wax. What is it? Just wax?

Hi Chrisprols. You can see the application of the adhesive/was starting at around the 50 second mark of the video.

You can see the remove of the part at adhesive cleanup starting at ~ 1:50 mark of the video.

Thanks in advance.

Cool...

Ordered a 1lbs sample bag.

I got a reply from carbide3d about this stuff.
carbide3d wrote:It's a fixturing wax that we include with the machine. It's like a normal machining wax but it will hold two things together when it cools.
I asked them if they are going to sell it on their site, and they said.

Why wait?

The machinablewax site (follow the link)already have it in bags of 1lbs('sample pack') and up.
($20 for a small bag, $25 international shipping... and they accept PayPal)
