Pros-Aide “The Original” is 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® II was developed to help eliminate the difficulty of removing Pros-Aide®“The Original” from the skin. Pros-Aide® II is very similar to “The Original” in all characteristics except that many cleansers and adhesive solvents will break it down more easily. Pros-Aide® II is useful on very sensitive skin or thin areas of appliances and prosthetics. It is also great for short term applications.
Pros-Aide® No Tack has the great properties of “The Original” Pros-Aide® but with less residual tackiness. Pros-Aide® No-Tack is used just like Pros-Aide® for producing PAX paint™ but has significantly reduced stickiness or tack after drying. Just like “The Original”, Pros-Aide® No-Tack has great adhesion, water-resistance and flexibility.
Aqua-Cream™ is a unique lotion that should be applied before or after using Pros-Aide© or other make-up. Because Aqua-Cream™ is specially formulated with unique protective film-forming emollients, it is great for your hands and the skin. Aqua-Cream™ Lotion should be applied generously, spread evenly but not rubbed in. Rinse with cool water and pat dry.
Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive excellent for filling in seams or gaps in appliances and also great for repairs. Pros-Aide® Cream Adhesive does not contain any artificial fillers to make it thick yet has the properties of Pros-Aide® at heavy viscosity. Pros-Aide® Cream adhesive can be easily colored to make thick PAX Paint ™ for use as a filler. Pros-Aide® Cream can also be used to create scars or textures in molds or directly on the skin.
Pros-Aide® Remover is a special remover/cleaner for Pros-Aide® and PAX paint. It is formulated from ingredients that allow for safe removal of Pros-Aide®, PAX Paint and other make-up from the skin.
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.
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.
