Either Way, You're Covered!
is the world's first alginate for life casting that does not contain free crystalline silica (a known cancer causing agent). Alja-Safe™ alginate is easy to use and cures quickly. Perfect for making "one-shot" molds of the face, hands and other body parts. Alja-Safe™ has good tear strength and captures detail better than other alginates, giving you more accurate reproductions. There's no reason not to be Alja-Safe!What Did You Use To Make That Arm?
People usually cast gypsum into an alginate mold which is sooo boring. With Alja-Safe™ you can also cast Matrix™ NEO, Smooth-Cast™ 300Q FAST plastic or Smooth-On silicone rubbers. The life cast arm (above) was made out of a new softer-than-skin silicone rubber called Ecoflex™. Ecoflex™ rubbers are even softer than our popular Dragon Skin™ and are available in Shore 5A, 00-30A and 00-10A hardnesses. They are easy to mix and cure quickly with a tack-free surface. Color with Silc Pig pigments or paint with silicone paints. Ecoflex™ rubbers are incredibly stretchy and strong . . . Great for animatronics, special effects and orthotic/orthopedic applications.
Body Double™ Mix-&-Apply-To-Skin Silicone has become the industry standard for making lasting molds of the face, hands and other body parts. Copies perfect detail from any original. Cast As Many Times As You Want! - Unlike alginates, you can cast anything into a Body Double™ mold and make many castings from a single mold - not just one. Finished molds last a long time.
For production casting, you can't beat Body Double™.
