Alja-Safe Alginate 20 Lb box (799206)
Alja-Safe is a natural, crystalline silica-free, seaweed-based powder that is mixed with water to create the mold making material. Alja-Safe molds are safe and flexible for life-casting applications but can tear easily. Alja-Safe molds are water-based, which may result in mold shrinkage. Completed molds are temporary and should be cast into as soon as possible. 20Lb Box.
Also available in a fiber reinforced "non-sag" version of the original, Alja-Safe Acrobat.
Alja-Safe is a new addition to the Smooth-On family of "Life Casting" mold making materials. Alja-Safe alginate is suitable for making "temporary" molds of the face, hands and other body parts. For making re-usable molds of any body part, use "Body Double" silicone rubber.
What sets Alja-Safe Apart? In addition to being an exceptional body molding material, Alja-Safe alginate does not contain free crystalline silica (a known carcinogen). Alja-Safe also 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.
