Captain America Tribute Helmet Made from Smooth-CastŪ 45D
When Jonathan Hunt was searching out materials to create 'Captain America' style helmets for his clients, he was looking for very particular properties.  The material had to be fast setting, somewhat flexible, pigmentable and also paintable. 

After searching and testing multiple materials, Jon found the answer in Smooth-Cast® 45 D.  Jon created a mold using Dragon Skin® 20 platinum cured silicone and was able to cast 45D quickly and easily into the finished mold.

The result: happy clients and a perfect material choice for this fantastic application.
