Smooth-On Slacker®

Smooth-On

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
