Slacker Tactile Mutator
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 silicone (for example, Ecoflex 00-30) 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).
