Mannequin Made From TASK® 15
Mannequin display manufacturer Bermann Display approached Smooth-On with a request for a new plastic that could be used to make hollow (roto-cast) figures for use in major department stores. The problem this company was encountering was returns of broken mannequins from the stores. "Invariably our clients will drop our mannequins down a flight of steps by accident, and these figures were breaking. Then they send them back to us for repair, which is a big drag on our operation" says owner Howard Bermann. Mr. Bermann continued "I need a plastic that can handle the 'drop down a flight of steps' test."

Enter TASK® 15 Plastic. 

TASK® 15 is a urethane plastic designed specifically for roto-casting high-impact parts. TASK® 15 is part of Smooth-On's TASK® Series, a new generation of performance urethane casting resins that offer superior physical and performance properties compared to our popular Smooth-Cast® line of general purpose casting resins. TASK® Plastics feature convenient mix-ratios, low viscosities, high tensile & flexural strength, and high flexural modulus. 

Mr Bermann states: "We were sold on the fact that TASK 15 is meant for high-impact. So we made 100 new mannequins and sent them out to our clients. It's been over a year and would you believe not a single one of those figures has come back for repair! At this point, all I can say is I am really impressed with TASK 15."
