Polytek

Specialty Molding & Casting Materials

Poly SkinWaxIn addition to Polytek’s more traditional liquid mold rubbers and casting plastics, we offer an alginate mold compound called Hydrogel® Mold Compound, which is safe for skin contact when making molds of the human form (life casting).

 

Use Poly Skin-Wax for making molds of hands and feet and PolyWax 15 for casting models that can be carved and easily tooled then reused if needed.
