A casting agent very similar to Dynacast, a two-part urethane compound that when mixed would harden inside a silicone mold to produce a hard positive hardcopy. The carbalon hardcopy could then be painted to be used as a paint master, or remain unpainted and used for tooling as a tooling master. While Dynacast was used primarily for pieces produced in 1981 and beyond, carbalon was the former compound of choice for hardcopies. It is found on a large number of pre-1982 hardcopies and on a few Micro Collection 4-Up hardcopies. Carbalon's main identifying feature is its brown or tanish color.
