What are American capsules made of?

The American pose is a technique imported from the USA, allowing you to perform a nail pose in a few moments, without going through the steps of handling gel and filing. This technique is totally based on a very specific type of capsule, called American Capsules. But, do you know what are American capsules made of? Keep reading, the nail supply expert Maryton will give you answers.

The correct answer… It’s plastic! And yes, contrary to what we think, the American capsules are absolutely not made of gel but of plastic! These capsules are then fixed (and not glued) using a rubber base on the nail plate. The result is then immediate.

Many nail technicians think that the American capsules are “made of gel”. In reality, the American capsules are made from ABS plastic (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), a material with amazing properties: both impact-resistant, rigid and flexible at the same time, lightweight and ultra-transparent.

ABS plastic is a thermoplastic polymer. This means that it has the property of softening when sufficiently heated and becoming hard again on cooling. American capsules are made from this hot, liquid plastic, poured into a mold and then cooled.

Alright! You already know what American Capsules are made of. In addition, I also advise you to invest in some professional manicure sets to care for nails.
