  1. Weight powder on scales
  2. Mix equal weight amount of water to powder (1 to 1 mixing by weight)
  3. Stir well (but donot spend too much time)
  4. Insert body parts or prototypes into the mixture
  5. Wait till the mixture solidifies. Its better to wait a bit extra time to ensure the solid is strong enough
  6. Wiggle the body parts and gently remove them from the mold
  7. Use the mold as soon as possible. This alginate impression powder is more dimensionally stable than any others on the market. However, shrinkage is still expected over days as all alginate mold. You can minimize the shrinkage by keeping the mold in sealed container. This mold is intended for one time use. However, its stronger than any other alginate mold on the market, you might be able to use it multiple times if care is taken.

As all Eparency products, this Eparency Alginate moulding powder is developed and made in Australia. And we can beat any prices of the Alginate moulding powder from legit business which paying Australian taxes. We can even match the price with these alginate powder made in China. Its sad to think that Australia has to import everything from oversea including this alginate powder. Eparency makes it here and be able to match their price, and even make a profit with their price.  and good thing is we can make 20 tons and deliver to you by next week. and we can make it cure faster or slower depending on your need. Eparency can make it thinner or thicker, stronger or weaker(easier to break the mould to access the cast). Thats the benefit of making stuff in Australia, we keep the profit and the knowledge here. We can keep improving the product and train young people with the knowledge.

This is a disposable moulding material so you will end up using larger quantity than silicone. That’s why we supply the product in bulk. If you can pick up from our outlet in Boronia, Victoria, the price would be even cheaper. Simply contact our sales via messenger or email, we can get a better pick up price for you. 

All ingredients in the Alginate moulding powder are food grade and conform to Australia standards. It is suitable to mould body parts and designed for skin touch. Alginate mould is not designed for multiple use. As it contains large amount of water, the mould is not suitable for epoxy casting. It’s designed for castmonite casting and plaster casting, etc. Alginate mold is not suitable for multiple use. Its not dimentional stable and will leach water over time. Its better to use it as soon as possible to avoid shrinkage. The gypsum or castmonite cast would be wet inside the mold. Once you demold the cast and let it dry, the cast will gain its strength.

Tips of successful moulding:
Prepare everything before mixing with water 
Mixing the correct amount of water 
Mix thoroughly but donot spend too much time mixing as the curing is happening during the mixing process
Timing is important as the moulding powder is designed to cure quick
In any case you would like to get slower or faster curing, contact us and our chemist can custom made it for you.
