A high quality, dust free Alginate with no flavour. Blue in colour. For taking quick and highly detailed impressions or moulds from almost any material. Being totally safe and so fast setting, it is especially suited for taking moulds directly from the skin. In this respect, it is commonly used by sculptors, model makers, make-up artists, in the film and television special effects industry for taking body casts, face casts or moulds of hands, feet, noses etc. Normal Set Alginate is a powder that, when mixed with water (at room temperature), sets in 2-3 minutes. Casts in plaster or wax should be taken almost immediately.
