Silicone casting rubbers are used for a variety of moulding and tooling applications ranging from the development of prototype parts to production moulds. They offer excellent release characteristics and are ideal for casting epoxy, polyester and polyurethane resin systems. An advantage of using silicone’s over urethane’s in mould making is that they are self-releasing. Usually, no mould release is required to separate the silicone mould from the model. There are two families of silicone, tin cure and platinum cure. Tin-based silicone’s, also called condensation-cure silicone’s, are economical two-component materials which cure at room temperature (RTV) to flexible, high tear-strength rubbers. Platinum cure silicone’s, also called addition cure silicone’s, are two-component high tear strength, flexible mold compounds. Platinum cure silicone’s can also be used to cast prosthetic’s for special effects makeup and medical purposes.Life casting materials are safe to use on human and animal skin. Life-casting involves duplicating another living being, while capturing the finest detail.

  • Platinum Cure Silicone

    Platinum Cure Silicone (15)

    Also known as addition-cure silicone, platinums exhibit the lowest long-term shrinkage and have the longest library life of all mold rubbers (with a price tag to match). While good for making molds for casting a variety of materials, platinums also have application and physical properties that other rubbers do not. As a result, they are used for other applications.

  • Tin Cure Silicone

    Tin Cure Silicone (9)

    Tin-based silicone's, also called condensation-cure silicone's, are economical two-component materials which cure at room temperature (RTV) to flexible, high tear-strength rubbers. Tin cured silicones can be poured onto models or they can be made brush-able by adding a thixotropic additive. They are ideal for molds where easy release or high temperature resistance is required. Tin cured silicone's can be used…
