PlatSil Gel-10 - All Kit Sizes

  • $26.32

Important! If you are casting medical simulators or similar parts, we recommend Skin Cast OO50. It cures a to a similar softness but is lower in mixed viscosity, has a longer working time and is cheaper than Gel-10! This is, however, a different formula so try a small kit first if you are changing brands to ensure suitability for your process.

With inflation raising the PlatSil costs to insane levels, here is a list of cost-saving alternatives to Gel-10 and other PlatSil Gels:

Using Gel-10 for moldmaking and looking for a less expensive alternative? Consider TC-5110.

    Translucent, ~8 Durometer, Stretchy (960% Elongation) Platinum Silicone Skin Material.

    Due to its translucent nature, nothing comes closer to real-life than Silicone. PlatSil Gel-10 is so versatile that you can cast, paint, pigment, bond it to itself, use it as a skinsafe adhesive, and so much more.

    May be pigmented with silicone pigments (see Additives). Add flocking for color variations. Accelerator is 71/73X and Retarder is 71/73R. Paint with small amounts of PlatSil Gel-10 mixed with silicone pigment by hand, or thin mixture with solvent (naphtha/xylene) to airbrush.

    Add Smith's Prosthetic Deadener, up to 250%, to lower the "snap", creating a great adipose (fatty)tissue effect and adhesiveness for prosthetic appliances.

    Also great for making small, super fast one piece molds to avoid seam lines. Visit our video library for full tutorials on Brushed-on mold making with PlatSil Gel-10.

    Gel-10 is mixed 1:1 by weight or volume. Gel-10 may be made "brushable" by adding TinThix or PlatThix thickener. (see Additives)

    Release original patterns with Eject-it 33 or 2500 spray release. For silicone to silicone applications, use 2350 release.

    PlatSil Gel formulas are all "water-white-translucent" unless pigment is added. PlatSil Gels may be thickened with PlatThix or TinThix. TinThix added to Gel-10 will result in a thick, frosting-like paste. PlatThix allows for a more nuanced thickening effect, such as a light paste. Gel-10 may also be slowed with 71/73R, accelerated with 71/73X, softened with Deadener, and even hardened with the new PlatSil Part H. You can find all of the additives and pigments for PlatSil Gels here.
