Product Packaging May Vary.
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
