PlatSil® Gel Silicone Rubbers

PlatSil GelsPlatSil® Gel Silicone Rubbers are the industry standard in the special effects industry for creating life-like theatrical prosthetic appliances for film, television and theater. They are also used for life casting, prop making and general silicone mold making.


These versatile platinum-cured silicones are skin-safe, fast-setting and offer simple 1A:1B mix ratios by weight or volume.


An array of accessory products can be used independently or in concert to increase working time, accelerate cure time, thicken the mix for brushing/layering, increase Shore Hardness, thin the mix for easier pouring, or “deaden” the rubber to soften and eliminate the snappy, synthetic look and feel of ordinary silicone rubbers.
