  • SKIN-SAFE INGREDIENTS – Alginate is mainly derived from seaweed and is absolutely safe to use on delicate newborn skin. EVENMEDICAL Alginate is latex free. When making impressions of body parts with hair/fur, use a barrier such as petroleum jelly to prevent hair from getting stuck in the alginate mould set.
  • All packaging is new and has a long shelf life (minimum 2 years). EVENMEDICAL alginate complies with ISO13485, CE approval, and safety directives for 3D life casting and dental applications.
  • Chromatic Colour Changing Alginate makes the process super easy. The alginate impression powder is light green by default (there are other options available), it turns pink when mixed with water, and turns back to light green when it solidifies.
  • Water below 30° is required to mix the alginate. This temperature ensures that the set time works as described. Warmer water makes the alginate set faster, and cooler water makes it slower. Water temperatures below 30° are optimal for making impressions of the baby’s hands, feet, and other body parts.
  • Mixing time is 1 minute 30-40 seconds – allow an additional 20-30 seconds to submerge hands/feet/objects in the mixture. Alginate starts to set at 2 minutes and is completely set at 3-4 minutes.
  • Once set, hands/feet can be easily removed from the container while the mould retains its shape and the intricate details it captures.
  • The plaster should be poured into your impression within 15 to 20 minutes of creation. If immediate casting is not possible, alginate moulds can be kept for up to an hour and a half to an hour or so, as long as they are sealed in a polyethylene bag or airtight container and kept moist with a damp cloth.
  • Even Medical Alginate Impression Powder, as the fast set, will ensure that the finest details are captured in the mould.
  • Even Medical recommends the use of Even Medical Gypsum, Even Medical Plaster, as the dental grade when making plaster models, ensuring that the finest details are reproduced for castings. You can find the plaster on our website. Immediately after making the mould, you will need to fill your impression with your desired casting material.
  • Each order includes complete instructions for use.
