Once a moderate vacuum is applied, the material becomes rigid achieving a hardness that can be compared with some plastics such as HDPE. Once the vacuum is released, the structure fully returns to the initial flexible state. The process is instant, easily reversible and can be repeated as many times as needed.

Varstiff® has demonstrated its ability to generate new or improved products.
