When strength is important, Worbla’s Mesh Art provides a thermoplastic with excellent adhesive properties and stability. Worbla’s Mesh Art offers a smooth, leather-like finish on one side with a mesh structure on the other with excellent strength and resilience.
Like all Worbla Products, Worbla’s Mesh Art is non-toxic and solvent-free. Worbla’s Mesh Art has also been partially made from recycled rice husks, as Worbla is always looking to create more sustainable, environmentally conscious products. Worbla’s Mesh Art is activated by heat (80-90°C / 175-195°F), and becomes mouldable and shapeable by hand when activated, and can be reheated endlessly until the desired shape is achieved.
Many of our tutorials on Worbla.com have suggested reinforcing areas for grommets and strapping/D-rings with Wonderflex, another thermoplastic you may be familiar with. Worbla’s Mesh art aims to provide the strength and tear-resistance that Wonderflex provides, while offering a cleaner, easier product with Worbla’s familiar sculpting properties.
