Accu-Cast 380-CC (Color Changing) Alginate - All Sizes
Accu-Cast 380-CC (Color Changing) Alginate formulated for Hand Casting. The color changing alginate tells you when to put your hands in.
The alginate powder is white. When you add water it changes to a bright bubble-gum pink.
If you're using 80°F water, the pink will fade to white at about 2 minutes 15 seconds. That's when you need to put your hands in.
The alginate should be set (dry on the surface) at 3 miinutes and you can take your hands out at 3 minutes 30 seconds.
With 90°F water, it will fade at ~1:35 and set (dry surface) at ~2:30, with hands "out" at 3:00.
Best when mixed at water/powder ratios between 4:1 and 5:1 (by weight), or about 1:1 by volume.
Mixes smooth and creamy, sets rubbery and strong. Easy to get your hands out of. Stone models come out smooth and detailed.
