Making a Silicone Mold of a Hand Using Ecoflex® 00‑35

Overview

This lifecasting video tutorial shows how Ecoflex® 00-35 silicone can be used to lifecast a hand.  Ecoflex® 00-35 is a skin safe fast setting platinum silicone.

Ecoflex® 00-35 is a soft, fast cure platinum-catalyzed silicone that is versatile and easy to use. Parts A and B are mixed 1:1 by weight or volume, pot life is about 2.5 minutes and rubber cures in about 5 minutes at room temperature with negligible shrinkage. Low viscosity ensures easy mixing and pouring. Rubber cures without a “tacky” surface, is very soft, very strong and very “stretchy”, stretching many times its original size. Ecoflex® 00-35 is off-white translucent and can be color pigmented using Silc Pig® silicone color pigments.

Certified Skin Safe - Ecoflex® 00-35 can be used for a variety of skin safe applications including making fast skin safe appliances for special effects and cosplay, cushioning for orthopedic and orthotic devices worn on the body and much more. Ecoflex® 00-35 can also be used to make fast cure rubber molds with high elongation for casting a variety of materials.
