Gel-Lay is soft and gel-like when wet. After drying, it is not elastic (like rubber) but flexible. It swims and is also suitable for aquamarine applications.

The material consists of two parts: an elastomer that is responsible for the rubber-like feel and material property, and a water-soluble ingredient. After printing, the object is placed in water whereby after one and four days, leaving behind the elastomer, and thus the soft porous object.
