CM-70Description: CM-70 Industrial Hard Styling clay is primarily used by product designers for the creation of automotive, marine, aerospace and consumer product models. Sculptors occasionally use CM-70 for high detail artwork, when a firmer clay body is desired or if they want to incorporate various shapes normally seen in transportation design into the sculpture. CM-70 is very firm at room temperature and can be shaped with modeling tools or templates. Because of its room temperature firmness CM-70 is suitable for studios with a desire to machine the clay. Normally warmed to approximately 145°F, a temperature that begins to feel hot in the users hands, CM-70 will accept developed template shapes well at most temperatures. The surface and corners of CM-70 can be smoothed nicely by hand at room temperature, although the flexibility is greatly reduced at room temperature. It would be difficult to take a cube of CM-70 and roll it into a ball at room temperature. CM-70 is a sulphur-based product that has excellent qualities of adhesion, cohesion and consistency. It can be carved, extruded and slicked to an extremely smooth surface.
Cautions: All of Chavant's clays have been approved by ACMI to be Non-Toxic and Non-Hazardous. Some of these clays, including CM-50, contain sulphur, which may cause a burning sensation in the eyes of some users. Although not dangerous it may be uncomfortable. Over heating sulphur based clay will cause the sulphur to crystallize, which is easy to identify by the small, sand like granules which will be seen after the clay has been burned. These granules are impossible to remove so burned clay should be discarded. Do not overheat / burn the clay. See MSDS. Wash hands with soap and water after use.
