Infiltrations
Models are infiltrated in order to obtain visual and mechanical characteristics,
Different infiltrations can be done and will depend on what you are looking for.

Wax:
It has the same attributes as candle wax that is a low-resistance but allows to fill the pores of the object, give a smooth surface, and great colours rendering.
Wax can only be use with plaster.

Epoxy resin:
Chemical substance that gives a great mechanical resistance, wet and temperature strength to your prototype. Epoxy resin infiltration skill allows machine-finish, adding insets or bearing, which make possible to assemble your prototype with production pieces.
Epoxy resin is usually used with plaster, but can also be used with cellulose.

Cyanoacrylate:
Rapid strong glue that has a good mechanical resistance and a good colours rendering.
It is used with plaster.

Elastomer:
Synthetic rubber that give flexibility to the model.
It is used with cellulose.
