Smooth-On Dragon Skin FX-Pro - Special Effects Silicone Casting Rubber

Dragon Skin® FX-Pro is a soft, stable, high performance platinum silicone rubber specifically designed for creating silicone makeup appliances and skin effects. Dragon Skin® FX-Pro is compatible with Skin-Tite® silicone adhesive as well as medical grade pressure sensitive adhesives for adhering silicone appliances temporarily to the skin. Soft and stretchy FX-Pro has a Shore hardness of 2A. FX-Pro can be combined with SLACKER® deadening agent to create a very soft silicone gel for filling encapsulated silicone pieces. An infinite number of color effects can be achieved by adding Silc-Pig® silicone pigments. Cured rubber can also be painted with the Psycho Paint® system.

Features

  • Soft - Shore 2A hardness allows for softer appliances using less SLACKER® deadening agent
  • Low Viscosity - combined with long working time reduces bubbles and makes pouring easier
  • Cures Dry - will not leach silicone fluid
  • Long Working Time - 10-12 minute working time is good for larger pours or injections
  • Fast Cure - 40 minute cure time allows for quick turnaround of castings or molds
  • More Workable - Do More - has a ‘gel’ stage - slushing the material into prosthetic molds is easier

Instructions

Measuring & Mixing

Before you begin, pre-mix Part B thoroughly. After dispensing required amounts of Parts A and B into mixing container (1A:1B by volume or weight), mix thoroughly making sure that you scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing container several times.

Pouring

For best results, pour your mixture in a single spot at the lowest point of the containment field. Let the rubber seek its own level. A uniform flow will help minimize entrapped air. If using as a mold material, the liquid rubber should level off at least 1/2” (1.3 cm) over the highest point of the model surface.

Curing

Allow rubber to cure for 45 minutes at room temperature (73°F / 23°C) before demolding. Time to demold can be reduced with mild heat or by adding an appropriate amount of Plat-Cat® cure accelerator (See Plat-Cat® technical bulletin available at www.smooth-on.com for details). The pot life and cure times can be extended using Slo-Jo® cure retarder (see Slo-Jo® technical bulletin available at www.smooth-on.com for details). Do not cure rubber where temperature is less than 65°F / 18°C.

* Dragonskin is often used for making realistic durable masks and appliances for special effects, used to make silicone mermaid tails, and used to make realistic reborn dolls.
