Specialty Molding & Casting Materials
In 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).
|Hydrogel® Mold Compound||Use Hydrogel® to make quick, single-use molds, especially when skin contact is required.|
|Poly Skin-Wax||Used by melting in a therapeutic paraffin bath to make dipped or brushed molds of hands and feet. Not for use on sensitive areas such as the face (use PlatSil® Gels or Hydrogel® instead).|
|Poly Wax 15||Use for casting models that can be carved and easily tooled then reused if needed.|
