Life Form is a poly addition cure RTV silicone rubber that vulcanises at room temp. A & B components are mixed together to the correct ratio of 1:1. A thixotropic mixture is then ready to be applied directly to the body. It can be cast directly into your mould and it is reusable. Life Form can bond to itself, allowing the life-caster to apply thinner skins resulting in less material and less waste. Life Form also offers release properties making it unique. Life Form can be applied direct to clean skin with no loss of detail, and be removed with ease.

Transil 20 is a platinum translucent two-component one to one mix ratio silicone elastomer which cures at room temperature by a poly-addition reaction (1:1 ratio).
Transil 20 is one of the lowest viscosity silicone on the market, it has a super fast curing time and can be de-moulded in 30 minutes at room temperature. It exhibits extremely high strength and is fantastic for quick mould making. (If 10 mins is to quick you can slow it down with our retarders) The Transil 20 is super tough for applications where high strength is essential.
