PT Flex Series Casting Rubbers – New & Improved

PT Flex Fast-Setting Casting RubberPT Flex Series liquid rubbers are pourable polyurethane casting rubbers specifically designed for making prototypes as well as functional rubber parts. Unlike liquid polyurethane mold rubbers (for mold making), these castable rubbers are low in viscosity and are fast curing so they can be demolded rapidly.

New & Improved PT Flex Casting Rubbers no longer contain mercury. 

Features

  • Wide range of rubber hardness (Shore A20 – D60)
  • Rapid demold times
  • Low-viscosity
  • Easy 1A:1B mix ratios
  • Low shrinkage on cure
  • Can be colored with PolyColor Dyes
  • Several accessories available to manipulate liquid rubber (e.g., accelerate, soften, thicken)

 

Typical Uses

  • Rapid prototyping
  • Model making
  • Quickly replicate 3D-printed parts
  • Decorative objects
  • Production parts and tools
  • Special effects
  • Props
  • Duplicate masters and patterns

 

Note: DO NOT mix “New & Improved” PT Flex rubbers with previous versions of PT Flex rubbers.
