What type of project do you have in mind?
We offer a lot of different formulas because every type of project has an ideal set of working and setting time properties.
Remember, the numbers in the product names have meaning: 380 means a 3 minute set with 80°F water.
Choose the right formula and your project will be much easier.
1) If you're a beginner always err on the side of having MORE working time than you think you need. Its always better to have a little extra time than not quite enough.
2) Warmer water and warmer air temperatures will speed up the setting time of alginates, whereas cooler will slow them down.
