EASTON, Pa. and KALAMAZOO, Mich., July 12, 2018 - Polytek® Development Corp., a manufacturer of specialty polymers for mold making and casting applications, announced today the acquisition of Alumilite Corporation. The acquisition was assisted by MPE Partners and will further enhance their investment portfolio.
The PlatSil® FS-Series (Fast-Setting) is Polytek's newest line of platinum-cured, room temperature curing (RTV) silicone rubbers. FS-Series products can be demolded faster than other PlatSil® silicones and also offer the benefit of having long pour times (~8 minutes) relative to their cure speed (~25 minutes). This allows for fast turn-around of molds and parts with sufficient time to mix and pour.
Polytek is now manufacturing three new molding latex rubbers. The NaturForm Series offers high-performing, natural molding latex rubbers that are most often used to make molds for casting plaster, concrete (e.g., veneer stone manufacturing and statuary) and limited casting with some resins.
Polytek is switching things up at World of Concrete this year! Instead of our usual location in the North Hall, we are taking it outdoors to the Silver Lot so we can show you HOW our products work.
Please be advised that Polytek® will be closed on the following days:
