LifeCasting with alginate is really fun, educational & safe. We offer the best prices on materials and tools- always have.
Mix it with water and alginate powder turns into a thick liquid molding material. Shove your hand in, or put it on your face, and in a couple of minutes you have a mold that can produce a 3D lifecasting (life casting) with incredible detail. Alginate is inexpensive, wholesome fun- but it is also an indispensable tool for many industries.
"We are now using Accu-Cast in our Special Effects school here at Douglas Education Center (Tom Savini program). It is the best alginate that is currently on the market. The Genesis-V is thick, creamy and easy to apply with very little sagging and basically no air bubbles. Other alginates that we tried would tear easily, but Accu-Cast is very strong." -Douglas Education Center, Monessen, PA
Accu-Cast alginates are highly preferred by lifecasters because of the selection, quality and low price. We encourage you to compare our prices with those of our competitors. Why pay more?
Accu-Cast has been making alginate for over 40 years so we really know what we’re talking about. We hope this website will answer your questions (FAQ’s HERE), but we encourage you to contact us with any questions or problems you may have. We’re here to help you (M-F, 8am-5pm, Pacific Time).
Know the Facts: The recommended mixing ratio Accu-Cast alginates is 4 parts water to 1 part powder. Our competitors recommend 3 parts water to 1 part powder. With ours you get 5 pounds of mixed alginate to just 4 pounds of theirs. Others will tell you that their alginate can be mixed at up to 7 to 1 for marketing purposes, but anyone's alginate mixed like that is runny, sloppy mess that takes forever to set and never developes any strength.
Whether you call us accucast, accucas or acucast, or whether you call it algenate, alganate, alginat or alignate- you’ve come to the right place.
