Body Double™ is a long lasting platinum-cure silicone rubber that can be applied directly to the skin to make molds of the face, hands and other body parts. The rubber cures quickly and will reproduce perfect detail from any original model – far better detail than any alginate! Body Double™ is skin safe and certified by an independent laboratory. One Casting or Many . . . For About The Same Price: unlike alginates, which are good for one only casting, Body Double™ will last for many castings of almost any material including plaster, Matrix™ Neo™, wax, resins (Smooth-Cast urethanes, polyester, etc.), low-temperature melt metal alloys, etc. The amount of Body Double™ used per mold is less than most alginates, so the cost per mold is about the same. Adding HYPERFOLIC™ release additive to Body Double™ silicone will create a self-releasing silicone which is easily removed from hair-covered body areas.
