Description

A female figure dressed as an ice sculptor with a jumper, hat and mittens. The dragon ice sculpture is one of the first transparent Playmobil figures and is made using INEOS Styrolution's Zylar 550 a methylmethcarylate butadiene styrene or MBS. This material provides practical toughness, good clarity and superior processing characteristics for injection moulding applications. The high wall-thickness of this figure is particularly challenging to other materials, as the pieces can take longer to cool and can result in sink marks, using Zylar avoids these issues. The dimensions listed are for the dragon figure complete with wings.
