Q-Ballz Encapsulant & Bald Cap Material 4oz (801135)
Q-Ballz is a single component liquid that can be used as a bald cap plastic or for encapsulating silicone gel prosthetic appliances. Thin with acetone to airbrush material into a mold (or over a plastic head form) for creating a membrane. Use as soon as possible after opening. The edges of a silicone prosthetic appliance encapsulated in Q-Ballz can be dissolved away with acetone. Q-Ballz can also be used to create bald caps on an appropriate head form.

INSTRUCTIONS:

WARNING - FLAMMABLE Liquid and vapor. Keep away from ignition sources and follow precautions for handling flammables. Materials should be stored and used in a warm environment (73F / 23C). This material has a limited shelf life and should be used as soon as possible. Wear safety glasses, long sleeves and rubber gloves to minimize contamination risk.
