Also called condensation-cure silicone, these are high-tear silicone rubbers that are known as the “work horse” of the industry because of their performance and economy. Tin cured silicone molds are used for casting wax, gypsum, polymer modified gypsum, etc. but are best known for standing up to production casting of urethane, epoxy and polyester resins. They are also good for casting low temperature melt metal alloys.
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. For example, some are certified “skin safe” and can be applied directly to human skin. They are also used for making prosthetic and orthotic devices, skin safe appliances and effects, etc. Some are certified “food safe” for culinary applications.
Ecoflex 00-10 (Extremely Soft) Pint Kit.
Ecoflex rubbers are platinum-catalyzed silicones that are versatile and easy to use.
Ecoflex rubbers are mixed 1A:1B by weight or volume and cured at room temperature with negligible shrinkage. Low viscosity ensures easy mixing and de-airing, or you can choose to mix and dispense using our convenient dispensing cartridges.
Cured material is skin safe and certified by an independent laboratory to ISO 10993-10, Biological evaluation of medical devices, Part 10: Tests for irritation and skin sensitization.
Ecoflex Gel Pint Kit
Ecoflex GELis an extremely soft, platinum silicone rubber gel specifically designed for creating silicone makeup appliances, for cushioning, creating gaskets, encapsulation, and other applications requiring a very soft silicone material.?
Ecoflex GEL has a Shore hardness of 000-35, this is below the Shore 00 hardness scale. Because Ecoflex GEL is so soft, it works very well as a silicone gel for filling encapsulated silicone makeup appliances and prosthetics. An infinite number of color effects can be achieved by adding Silc Pig silicone pigments.
As Ecoflex GEL is very tacky when cured, in some situations, it is recommended that Ecoflex GEL be encapsulated with another non-tacky platinum silicone such as Dragon kin FX Pro, or another suitable membrane. Ecoflex GEL is mixed 1A:1B by weight or volume. Rubber cures at room temperature (73F / 23C) with negligible shrinkage.
Skin Safe FX Applications
Ecoflex™ GEL and Ecoflex™ 00-20 can be used for a variety of skin safe applications including making fast skin safe appliances for special effects and cosplay, cushioning for orthopedic and orthotic devices worn on the body and much more. Ecoflex™ 00-35 FAST can be also be used for lifecasting.
Rebound 40 Brush on Silicon Rubber Gallon Kit
Rebound 40 -
Rebound® silicone rubbers are easy-to-use platinum-cure silicone rubbers which self-thicken for making brush-on molds of almost any model. Mixed 1A:1B by volume (no scale necessary), Rebound® can be applied with a brush or spatula to vertical surfaces without sagging and will cure with negligible shrinkage to a flexible rubber.
