Special Effects - TV/Movies/Theatre/Prosthetics
The area of special effects is immensely diverse with many liquid rubbers used for making molds for casting every type of prop imaginable. The props themselves require casting materials such as foams, rotocastable polyurethane plastics and clear glass or ice-like products like Poly-Optic water clear plastics.
PlatSil Gel-10 is an industry-standard silicone rubber for making state-of-the-art theatrical prosthetic appliances used for making creatures; aged, injured or deformed actors and much more. PlatSil Gel-10 is very versatile given it can be mixed with a "Deadener" to reduce the snappy silicone feel and create a gell of nearly any feel and level of stickiness. This control with Deadener gives PlatSil Gel-10 the ability to simulate any type of tissue. With all its available additives, PlatSil Gel-10 can be controlled by the artist to meet the needs of any prosthetic application.
