Sintra board?

Just curious if anyone has used Sintra board or even heard of it....It's lightweight and very sturdy, sort of like mdf but way way lighter. I think it has alot of possibilities but don't know just what to use it for. I have a bunch of it in 7 1/2 x 12 1/2 pieces/sheets. It's about 1/4 inch thick. I'm going to google it now and see what it's really used for. My dad gave it to me thinking it could be used for SOMETHING - it becomes bendable when heated, and can hold a shape (unless it is again re-hearted and then it will start to lose it's shape). I know it'll be great, but I'm not sure what for! Got any ideas? I'd snap a pic but it just looks like a piece of smooth white plastic finish board....

And it IS acid free.....scrapbook covers are what's going through my mind...maybe they're embossable with a stamp when they're heated....I'd like to find out.

From the Internet I gather that it's a bit hit with the Anime/CosCon crowd. :) But, you could probably make some cool 3D things with it to embellish...or make the actual embellishments with it. My only concern is that I doubt it is acid free since it is a PVC product. Looks like fun, though! Can't wait to see what you come up with! :)
