Alja-Safe® is a new addition to the Smooth-On family of "Life Casting" mold making materials. Alja-Safe® alginate is suitable for making "temporary" molds of the face, hands and other body parts. (For making re-usable molds of any body part, use "Body Double®" silicone rubber.)What's Sets Alja-Safe® Apart? In addition to being an exceptional skin safe body molding material, Alja-Safe® alginate does not contain free crystalline silica (a known carcinogen). Alja-Safe® also captures detail better than other alginates, giving you a more accurate reproduction of your original.
Alja-Safe® is easy to use and cures quickly. It reproduces fine detail and makes and excellent temporary mold - good for one or two reproductions of any body part. You can then cast plaster, Matrix® NEO® (polymer modified gypsum) or Smooth-Cast® 300Q fast urethane resin into the mold to make a reproduction.

Working time and demold time can be reduced by using warmer water. Cooler water will give a longer working time and extend the demold time.
