Ecoflex® GEL is an extremely soft, platinum silicone rubber gel specifically designed for creating silicone makeup appliances, cushioning, creating gaskets, encapsulation and other applications requiring a very soft silicone material.
Ecoflex® GEL has a Shore hardness of 000-35, this is below the Shore 00 hardness scale. Because Ecoflex® GEL is so soft, it works very well as a silicone gel for filling encapsulated silicone makeup appliances and prosthetics. An infinite number of colour effects can be achieved by adding Silc Pig® silicone pigments.
As Ecoflex GEL is very tacky when cured, in some situations, it is recommended that Ecoflex® GEL be encapsulated with another non-tacky platinum silicone such as Dragon Skin FX Pro or another suitable membrane. Ecoflex® GEL is mixed 1A:1B by weight or volume. Rubber cures at room temperature (73°F / 23°C) with negligible shrinkage.
