Hot Wire Extensions is a recycling conscious process, using the waste nylon powder from SLS 3D printing, a material that is currently not recycled. The process starts by creating a shape using nichrome wire, which sits within a container. The container is then filled with Hot Wire Extensions’ unique formula of nylon powder and sand. An electric current is sent through the wire, causing the surrounding nylon to melt and grow around the form. The longer the current flows, the larger the fused material becomes leading to endless flexibility in length and width.
