The “original” water-based adhesive for the skin. It adheres for long periods without irritation. Pros-Aide® is the leading adhesive used for medical prosthetic applications. Pros-Aide® is the standard in the industry for adhering appliances and other make-up components to skin. It is safe to use on all skin including sensitive areas. It gives a strong bond and has high water resistance. It is non-toxic and completely safe.
- Pros-Aide® is the base for PAX Paint™ – a combination of water-based colors with Pros-Aide®. PAX Paint™ is a flexible color with high bond strengths used for the skin and many surfaces.
- Pros-Aide® has been used in thousands of projects in filming major motion pictures, stage and TV.
- Pros-Aide adhesive products DO NOT contain the allergen, “rubber-based” latex.
Pros-Aide is a contact adhesive: When an adhesive is a contact this means it adheres to itself, taking along whatever it is attached to. To use a contact adhesive you simply apply even coats of the adhesive to each material you wish to adhere, allow it to dry, and stick them together.
Paint a thin coat of the adhesive over the back (inside) area of the prosthetic and let dry -- it dries clear. Be careful not to let it fold over onto itself, because pros-aide is VERY sticky and will stick to itself. Once you have painted it on the back of the prosthetic, also paint a thin coat over the area where the appliance is to be placed and let it start to dry. Once both are mostly dry, firmly press together.Removal:
Using Pros-Aide Remover, find a spot where the appliance has started to lift a bit. Work the remover in under the appliance with a brush or swab. Continue applying remover to this area and easing the appliance off. Do not pull too hard or rip off the appliance. Let Pros-Aide Remover do its job; your appliance and performer will be happier for it. Skin can then be cleaned with a good cleanser. Follow with a light moisturizer to calm skin.
This adhesive has been determined to be safe for skin and nasal mucosa.
