Materials Science for Cosplay 3: Thermoplastics
I’ve been trying to work out how to explain thermoplastics for a while. There is a lot to say on the subject, but I really just wanted to throw out the basics of what they were and what was happening when we pointed a hair dryer at Worbla. Instead of trying to explain it in print, though, I thought a demonstration was in order.
Below is a little video about frozen noodles and organic chemistry. Enjoy!
