Is polycaprolactone food safe? Answered

Polycaprolactone ( aka "Friendly Plastic" aka "Instamorph" ) is a very interesting material with lots of diy potential.  I wonder, since Wikipedia mentions it is used in surgical implants, does that mean also that it is food safe? And If it is food safe, is it also aquarium safe? Thanks for any insights

Reinforce/modify polyester?

I am currently working on a project that uses polycaprolactone because it has a low melting point and is easily moldable. The problem is once it has been molded and cooled it is sometimes too thin to be as firm as I need it to be and will bend when force is applied. Is there some way to mix the polycaprolactone with another substance to make it more firm without sacrificing much of its moldability or altering its melting point much? If not, is there another material with similar properties that I can substitute?
