is similar to PlatSil Gel-10 and PlatSil Gel-25 in all respects except in its Shore hardness. Gel-OO is measured on the Shore OO scale as an OO-30. It offers a 1:1 mix ratio, 6-minute working time and 30-minute demold time. It can be thickened with Thivex for brushing, slowed down for a longer working time with PlatSil 71/73 Part R and, maybe most importantly, Gel-OO can be “deadened” with Smith’s Theatrical Prosthetic Deadener or PlatSil Deadener LV (Low Viscosity). In fact, even less Deadener is required to soften the Gel-OO and to create tacky, self-sticking appliances or super-gels. In addition, PlatSil Gel-OO can be combined with PlatSil Gel-10 and PlatSil Gel-25 in any ratio (keeping respective As and Bs at the right 1:1 ratio) to make any hardness PlatSil Gel between a Shore A~25 to a super-soft Shore OO~30.
1A:1B (by weight or volume) platinum-cured silicone systems with 6-minute working and 30-minute demold time. PlatSil Gel00 cures to a Shore 00-30 hardness, But remember to create prosthetic parts you need to add the Smiths deadener to achieve the gel status.
Use PlatSil Gels as mold rubbers, to create prosthetic appliances. We offer an array of accessory products that can be used independently or in conjunction with to increase working time; accelerate cure time; thicken the mix for brushing/layering; thin the mix for easier pouring or for softening; or “deaden” the rubber to soften and eliminate the snappy, synthetic look and feel of ordinary silicone rubbers.
