Yes, that's polyester you found. It's not too bad for small parts if you
cast carefully, but polyurethane is much better. The polyester is also
pretty thick, so doesn't flow into molds as easily as urethane (which is
usually almost water thin). I can dig up some mail order links for casting
materials, but I don't know if they'll ship oustide of the US.
