animatronic grade vs prosthetic grade foam latex?
We are making a full body suit and I was wondering whats the difference between these two materials?
Animatronic grade foam latex is a bit higher density making it more durable so it can handle the repeated movement associated with being stretched over a core that moves around repeatedly.
Prosthetic grade is lighter density so it moves easier on the face, but is less durable as a result.
Some folks run prosthetics in animatronic grade foam latex just to make them more durable for long term use or occasionally repeated applications. This is fairly common practice in the haunted attraction industry.
