One Casting or Many . . . For About The Same Price:
Unlike alginates, which are good for one only casting, Body Double will last for many castings of almost any material including plaster, Matrix Neo, wax, resins (Smooth-Cast urethanes, polyester, etc.), Low-temperature melt metal alloys, etc. And the amount of Body Double used per mold is less than most alginates, so the cost per mold is about the same.
Body Double "Standard Set" for larger surface areas. Working time of 5 minutes and a demold time of 20 minutes
Body Double "Fast Set" for fast turn around. Working time of 90 seconds and a demold time of 5 minutes
