During World War II, America’s supplies of natural rubber was scarce. The Japanese had occupied many areas in the South Pacific where rubber trees are found.
GLUX Putty and many other silicone rubber products were developed during World War II as American industries searched for rubber substitutes that could be used in place of natural rubber tires, gaskets, and seals.
In 1936, at the Mellon Institute of Industrial Research, Dr. Earl Warrick began experimenting with “organosilicon” chemistry - combining silicon (think: sand, glass, computer chips) with carbon (think: you and me, charcoal, and fossil fuels).
In 1943, he left the institute to join the newly formed Dow Corning Corporation. His research was refocused – help the war effort by developing a synthetic rubber substitute. Although he failed to produce a suitable rubber before the end of the war, one result of his experiments was a Silicone Bouncing Putty (the primary ingredient in GLUX Putty).
Although it had no industrial use, he kept some around - it made a nifty toy!

New magnetic GLUX putty with attractive properties! It’s infused with millions of magnetic particles. Includes a very powerful magnet to charge and demonstrate this putty’s unique powers.
Your Magnetic Glux is infused with millions of nano-magnets that give this putty its special properties. As it is, this putty will react to the presence of a magnet. To make this putty an exponentially strong magnet itself, you can ‘charge’ it by aligning all its particles with rare earth magnet.
Once charged, this putty will have lots of fun magnetic powers. It will attract a magnet or other pieces of Magnetic GLUX. It can repel a magnet and then attract it back again or move, roll, and lift a magnet from a distance. You can make it pick up lightweight metal objects, and lock a tendril in space against gravity. Magnetic Glux can reveal the shape of the field lines emanating from a permanent magnet.
When you manipulate and smoosh Magnetic Glux all the millions of micromagnets are pulled and oriented in random directions. This cancels their magnetic field. To regain the magnetic properties of Magnetic Glux, expose it to a magnet again and the particles will realign and face the same direction.
This stuff glows like nothing I have ever seen. It just sucks up the sunlight and brilliantly radiates it back to you. In the light it is ghostly pale and in the dark it's a radioactive green. Great fun day or night.
Made in the USA.
