Re: Urethane vs. latex for cowls


I personally prefer latex for wearing over anything, foam latex being the exception if you can run foam and constantly make yourself a new one whenever it goes bad. Urethane cowls are great for display, fiber glass cowls are even better for display. I have all of the movie cowls; 89, 92, 95 (sonar and Panther) and 97 cowls in urethane for display purposes and my wearable cowls are made of latex. Although, my new latex cowls looks amazing on display, because they fully hold their shape and are very flexible and comfortable. I've seen a lot of latex cowls out there that are so stiff and thick, it is almost impossible to put on if you have a bigger head then the neck opening.

Zane for example had a bigger head then my Clooney cowl neck, but with a little bit of water, simply touched onto the inside of one of my cowls and my latex becomes extremely slippery and he was able to pull it on like nothing. My old Returns cowls were kind of small (because I didn't want to ruin a urethane piece I had, did a plaster two piece bump, followed by running a piece that shrunk etc..) and needed to be thin in order to fit people, but now I have giant Returns cowls, that I make out of latex (which will look like urethane, due to how I do them) and will fully hold their shape while remaining very flexible and comfortable to wear.

Another thing about urethane is the shelf life. Eventually, urethane will dry out, while latex pieces can last for 10-15 years, even longer if the latex is sprayed with plasti-dip which is the ultimate protector of uv light and wind (which makes latex deteriorate faster). For example, Artsee has a latex Returns cowl in his posession for over 10 years and is still in good shape.
