Kryolan Two-Part Cold Foam System

"Cold Foam" is a fast and easy alternative to hot foam. This material is not as flexible as the latex based hot foam, but your prosthetics are ready to pull from the mold in minutes instead of hours. No oven is required to use this product. This foam is also good as a filler for flimsy hollow parts such as latex horns. The only equipment needed is an accurate gram scale. The Kit comes with: Part A, Part B, a release agent, and instructions.

Most artists end up with both kinds of foam on-hand, for both serious projects and rush jobs.

Kryolan Cold Foam Kits

Kryolan "Cold" foam is a safe 2-part polyurethane kit. It does not require baking; the completed parts can be pulled from the mold in only 15 minutes. It is not as flexible as foam latex, but it is much faster and far less complicated. It is also great for use as a filler for props and masks.
