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. And the amount of Body Double® used per mold is less than most alginates, so the cost per mold is about the same.
  • Body Double® "Standard Set" for larger surface areas. Working time of 5 minutes and a demold time of 20 minutes
  • Body Double® "Fast Set" for fast turn around. Working time of 90 seconds and a demold time of 5 minutes
*Depending on material temperature, ambient temperature and body temperature. See Technical Bulletin for full details. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT WITHOUT READING THE TECHNICAL BULLETIN AND MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
