Smooth-On Slacker Gallon

Article number: 6683128
Availability: Out of stock

Slacker® is one component translucent clear fluid that is added to our translucent platinum-cure silicones such as Dragon Skin® and Ecoflex® products. Slacker® will change the “feel” of the silicone rubber to a softer and more “flesh-like” material. It also alters the rebound properties of the silicone, making it feel more like human tissue.

Slacker® allows the user to vary the degree of tackiness to the cured silicone, allowing for the creation of self-sticking silicone appliances. The amount of tackiness is in direct proportion to the amount of Slacker® added. Pieces created with Slacker® will not exude silicone oil, eliminating a common problem with other softening methods.

Slacker® can be added in larger proportions to Smooth-On’s super soft and stretchy platinum silicones (for example, Dragon Skin® FX-Pro®) to make silicone gel that can be used to create gel-filled silicone prosthetic appliances. Gel-filled appliances will flex, bend, and even wrinkle like human flesh. Silicone gels created with Slacker® can also be used to create cushioning materials for medical applications (anaplastology). Use Skin Tite® adhesive to temporarily, but securely, adhere silicone appliances to the skin.

Measuring Is Done By Volume Or Weight – Whether using an Ecoflex® product or a Dragon Skin® product, the proper mix ratio is 100 Parts A + 100 Part B + X Parts Slacker®. Everyone’s application and desired level of stickiness or “tack” will vary. The following chart should be used as a reference for you to achieve your own desired effect.
