      Good question 🙂

      All of the polymers I make are like a polymer used for packaging called polystyrene. Which is a type of thermoplastic polymer (that means it will melt if you heat it up).

      This plastic is really good at stopping water from getting through to the metal the dry paint is on. This will stop the rust of the metal.
