1) non toxic

2) can double over on itself and return to it's original position*

3) rigid enough to avoid plastic deformation at maximum design deflection*

4) can be obtained in "sheet form" in which many of the same sized pieces can be cut

*the ratio of (distance from bending edge to fold)/(material thickness) would be, at the very highest, 100. For example, if you folded an (0.1mm thick) 8.5x11 sheet of paper into a 8.5x5.5 pamphlet, the ratio I'm describing is (5.5*25.4)/.1 = 1,400.

Anyways, I would like some suggestions for materials that are linearly elastic within the criteria.

Thanks!
