Dwarvenite is our proprietary PVC-based casting material. It’s tough, yet slightly flexible -- that’s what makes our pieces nearly indestructible!

Yes, there’s an easy at home fix we recommend. In the video below, Nate will show you how it works.

Dwarvenite is specifically designed to be flexible. On rare occasions pieces might lose their memory and warp. Here’s how to resolve this problem:

1.  Heat the warped piece long enough so it's pliable, but not too hot; 10 to 20 seconds should be enough to make it flexible. For a large piece, heat only the area that’s warped, not the whole thing.

2.    Over-correct the bend: While the piece is warmed up, don’t just bend it straight and stop; try to over-correct the bend and hold it there for a bit before you correct and cool it. By flexing the bend briefly in the opposite direction you’ll remove the stress in the material and effectively reset the piece’s "memory".

3.    Bad bends may need a repeat:  For really bad warping, it may take another heat/fix/cool cycle to permanently remove the bend. Set the piece out until it returns to room temperature. It may flex back slightly to the warped shape. That means you got most of the stress out of the bend, but not all of it. Another warm/cool cycle should do the trick; but hold the over-correct bend for a bit longer before you straighten and cool it.

For UPS packages:

Please notify our customer support and we will create a service ticket. After a ticket has been submitted, most packages that are delayed start moving after a day or two.

For USPS packages:

We find tracking and shipping time less consistent with USPS – agents aren’t available to help us resolve these issues. Thankfully, nearly 100% of thesei ssues resolve themselves and the packages are delivered with a little extra time.  Of course, we will always ensure that you receive your order.
