Special FX Prosthetics

PlatSil Gel for ProstheticsPlatSil® Gels are platinum-cured silicone rubbers that have become the industry standard for making state-of-the-art theatrical prosthetic appliances for use in film, theater and television. 

These skin-safe silicones are used for making creatures, age make-up, injured or deformed actors, animatronic characters and much more. PlatSil Gels are very versatile given that they can be mixed with a “Deadener” to reduce the snappy, synthetic feel of silicone and simulate any type of tissue. With all of their available additives, PlatSil Gels can be controlled by the artist to meet the needs of any prosthetic application.

PlatSil Gels are also widely used for lifecasting and mold making.
