BITYGel Alginate Medium & Slow Set
BITYGel alginate is ideal for hand and body casting. For face and hand casting we recommend our 4-5 minute set alginate formula.
For full head casts, torso casts, or body casts we recommend our 6-7 minute formula.
Use AlgiSlo to bond multiple layers or add to the mix to further retard the set time.
As with all alginate formulas, BITYGel is a temporary mold that must be used within 1-2 hours after pouring. Alginate shrinks and distorts as it dries out.
BITYGel may be used for poured or "lay up" molds. Add more water to create a slightly runny consistency for poured hand molds. Use more BITYGel to get a thicker consistency for face, head, and body molds. Use our economical, high-grade, medical Plaster Bandages for supporting lay-up molds such as head casts and body casts.
