Group order for polycaprolactone

How many kg do you want? This enjoyable, useful polymer is $14.08/kg ($6.39/lb) ($0.40/oz)

Status of Order

I have a new sales Rep at Tri-ISO, Aaron. I have him working on a quote for 60-90kg of CAPA 6800 in 3mm pellet form. I told him it would be a repeating order of about 40kg a year. That's not a commitment, but just trying to keep him interested and I wouldn't be surprised if that turned out to be realistic. Where noted in () a dollar amount was pledged rather than a number of kg. Depending on the final $/kg the amount of $ pledged will take precedence.


email from Corey on 4-5-10: Dillo and I tested the two materials along side "Shapelock" and we have confirmed that CAPA 6800 is the material we want. The 6500 is great to work with, but because of it's greater "Melt Flow Index" (rate at which material is extruded when standard force is applied) when in its semisolid form, it flows more freely, which is challenging when working by hand as the material oozes out of the shape formed. I will not be entertaining having a split CAPA 6500/ CAPA 6800 order this time around. The materials are not different enough to warrant complicating the order. People working with molds may consider CAPA 6500 in the future, but, again, the differences are not that great.

Price has been finalized -- please update your pledge to reflect the number of kilograms you would like and add "- FINAL"
