materials from Dow Corning are two-part products consisting of a flowable
silicone rubber base and matching curing agent (or catalyst). These
materials are easy to use, give superb release and surface reproduction, are
long lasting, and do not require special dispensing or handling equipment.
The versatile range of Silastic mouldmaking rubbers means that whatever the
original to be reproduced and whatever the casting material, Dow Corning has
a product designed for optimum performance.
Choosing the Right Product
This is often a
difficult task and is primarily dependent on the complexity and nature of
the original to be copied. The tables in this catalogue will help determine
which product should be considered first, though in many cases a number of
materials may prove equally suitable. Final selection should be made with
the help of our Technical Department, and ultimately through your own trials
and experience. Please ensure that you obtain and read the relevant
Production Information and Safe Handling Instruction sheets before use;
these essential documents contain full details of each product, as well as
how-to-use procedures and precautions to be taken.
General Purpose Materials
Particularly in the
artistic field, the reproduction of artefacts using silicone moulds has
become very sophisticated, and high performance products such as Silastic
3481 are commonly used.
