Alja‑Safe™ Alginate Quick Start Guide


It's easy and fun to make a lifecast of anyone's hand!

Just follow the simple step-by-step lifecasting guide that follows, and you will have a perfect lifecasting which will "freeze time" and create a long lasting memento.

Safe to use Alja-Safe™ is the world’s first alginate that does not contain crystalline silica (a known carcinogen). Alja-Safe™ is perfect for making single-use molds of the face, hands and other body parts. It 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 an 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 ultra-fast urethane resin into the mold to make a reproduction.
