Revolutionary when it was introduced 15 years ago. Much imitated but never equalled Platsil Gel 10 is a 1:1 mix fast curing platinum/addition cure silicone that can be used for making moulds and props, masks and, with the addition of deadener, create silicone gel prosthetics and animatronic skins.
From the Polytek website; PlatSil Gel 10 is a unique, 1A:1B mix platinum silicone rubber with a 5-6 minute working time and a 30 minute demould to a Shore A10 hardness. Use PlatSil Gel 10 as a mould rubber, to create prosthetic appliances as well as for lifecasting. Polytek offers an array of accessories that work independently or in concert to increase working time; accelerate cure time; thicken the mix for brushing/layering; thin the mix for easier pouring or for softening; or to “deaden” the rubber to soften and eliminate the snappy, synthetic look and feel of ordinary silicone rubbers. Deadened PlatSil Gel can be made to look, feel and move like all types of living tissue. Unlike silicone fluid, Smith’s Theatrical Prosthetic Deadener does not leach from the cured rubber/appliance so bonding and use are far easier.
Tested by an independent laboratory and were found to comply with 21 CFR 177.2600 (as published in the Code of Federal Regulations)* for rubber articles intended for repeated use food contact surfaces when accurately measured, thoroughly mixed, and fully cured.
