Changing your Mind / Right to Cancel

If you change your mind for any reason, goods can be returned to us for a full refund if notified to us within 7 days of delivery; you have a further 7 days to dispatch the goods for their return to us. Goods returned after 7 days will incur a 15% restocking fee of the items being returned.

NO GOODS manufactured or sold by Advanced Materials Technology Pty Ltd will be accepted for a credit if returned after one (1) calendar month of original invoice date.

To return goods that are not faulty (i.e. because you changed your mind) they must be unused and, in the condition, they were delivered to you in. This does mean that, unless found faulty, we are unable to accept returns for:

  • Opened containers of resin, hardener, silicone or chemical release agent, unless found to be faulty or defective.
  • Unrolled and improperly re-rolled fabrics, unless found to be faulty or defective.
  • Any product that you have subsequently cut, shaped, broken or modified, unless found to be faulty or defective.

Refund of Delivery Charges (Cancelled Orders)

If you return an order in its entirety, then your outbound delivery charges will also be refunded (for orders within the South Africa’s Local Area’s.

If you return only part of an order, then the outbound delivery charge refund will be calculated based on the total postage cost of the original order (using standard service) minus the cost to send the items you are keeping (using standard service). Due to the way that shipping costs are incremented, this will often result in no delivery charge refund being due.

Faulty or Defective Goods

Any goods found to be faulty or defective and notified to us within 7 days of delivery can be returned to us for a full refund.

Refund of Delivery Charges (Faulty/Defective Goods)

If you are returning faulty or defective goods, then your outbound and return delivery costs will be refunded in full (for orders from within South Africa’s Local Area’s.)

In the event that you are returning faulty or defective goods which were ordered as part of a larger order then the outbound delivery charge refund will be calculated based on the total postage cost of the original order (using standard service) minus the cost to send the items you are keeping (using standard service).

Please check the box to acknowledge our return’s policy, by doing so you agree to our Return’s Policy of AMT Composites stated above.

If a product is backordered and ordered with other products, your order will only ship once the backordered item is back in stock.

LifeCast BPB – 25kg Technical Overview

  • Mix Ratio: 1-part LifeCast powder to 4-parts water by weight. (For example, 100 grams LifeCast powder: 400grams body temperature water).
  • Pot Life: 3-Minutes with water at 30°C *
  • Cure Time: 5-Minutes with water at 30°C * – * Pot life and cure time will vary depending on the temperature of the material and water.
  • Colour: light blue powder, but when mixed with water turns purple, and turns back to blue when cured and de-moulding can take place.

Processing recommendations

  • Always add the powder to the water when mixing.
  • A wooden stirring stick can be used to mix the material by hand but mixing with a shear mixer attached to a variable speed hand-held drill will give best results.
  • For easier release, use a very light application of petroleum jelly onto the skin and especially onto hair before moulding, this well help for an easier de-mould.
  • Once the body part has been removed from the cured LifeCast, pour a suitable casting material into the mould within a few mminutes (try not to leave for too long before casting). As the mould ages, it will start to seep water. If the mould has been left for a little while before using, be sure to pour out any water before casting, otherwise this may interfere with surface detail.


  • Do not inhale LifeCast Alginate powder.
  • In case of eye contact, flush thoroughly with water.
  • Not recommended for children to use without adult supervision.
  • Please read Material Safety Data Sheet for any other additional precautions.


  • Store unused powder material in a dry environment in an airtight container.
  • Shelf-Life of unused powder/material is 24 months if stored correctly.
