How to Make a Brush-On Mold with Mold Shell [Part II]

Part I of this video tutorial demonstrates how to make a brush-on mold using tin-cured silicone rubber (TinSil® 80-30). 


In Part II, we complete the project with the following:


• mold shell construction (using Poly 1512X polyurethane plastic)

• cutting the mold

• how to make a plastic casting using a rotational casting machine (using EasyFlo 120 polyurethane plastic)


The Steps in Part I of this tutorial:


1. Establish Pour Hole

2. Weigh & Mix Rubber for First Layer of Mold

3. Brush-On First Layer of Mold

4. Weigh, Mix  & Brush-On Second Layer of Mold

5. In the Meantime, Cast Rubber Pieces for Parting Line & Keys

6. Weigh, Mix & Brush-On Third Layer of Rubber

7. Weigh, Mix & Brush-on Final Layer of Rubber

8. Create Thick Parting Line


The Steps in Part II of this tutorial:


9. Construct Mold Shell

10. Remove Mold Shell

11. Cut Parting Line in Mold


The Final Step: Rotational Casting with EasyFlo 120 Polyurethane Plastic
