prevent spillages onto furnishing, carpets, curtains and upholstery.

test patch before use.

One bag of gunge/slime powder = 10 to 12 Litres of liquid product!

sized bucket. The volume can vary depending on the amount of water you add
to the powder. The more water added, the thinner the gunge will be. Keep at
8-10 litres for the gunge to appear as illustrated. If you order Thick or Extra
Thick gunge, the volume will be the same. Only the consistency will be thicker.

Both are from the hydroxyethylcellulose family. Natrosol is a well known brand name, while MS»Gunge is our own brand.
They both mix similar, however MS»Gunge mixes very quickly (around 30 seconds), while Natrosol is slightly longer around 2-3 minutes.
In liquid form, MS»Gunge is more matt, stickier and generally thicker. Natrosol smooth and glossy looking - ideal for studio / professional use.
Natrosol is easier to clean as it doesn't 'stick' as much as MS»Gunge.
To sum up, they are from the same family and share many similar characteristics, however they differ in the mixing process and texture.
