Product Overview

Technical Bulletin

Specifically designed for doing face molds, FaceGel is also ideal for heads and other medium sized Layup Molds- where alginate is placed onto a vertical surface. FaceGel (590) has an extra thickener in it that makes it go on more like cake frosting rather than pancake batter. Less waste also equals more economy.

  • Mixes thicker than normal alginates
  • Sets in about 5 minutes when using 90°F water
  • Doesn't drip like ordinary alginates- stays where you put it
  • Sets gradually from the inside out- ideal for face castings
  • Sets very flexibly and tough
  • Loses water very slowly to evaporation

Available in 1, 2.5, 5, 25 and 50 pound bags. For larger orders, please contact us.

Approximate requirements:

  • A face mold takes only 3-4 ounces of FaceGel (4-5 per pound)
  • A half torso takes about .75 to 1 pound
  • A head casting takes about 1.5 pounds
