PlatSil® 73-29 is a 1A:10B mix, mid-range hardness (A30), platinum silicone liquid mold rubber. Molds made from this liquid rubber exhibit long library life, high-performance and no shrinkage on cure.

PlatSil 73-29 is great for making molds for all types of resin casting (polyurethane, polyester, epoxy) and foam casting; application of release agent is not required prior to casting. Molds are often used for prototyping, model making, hobby reproduction, taxidermy, soap and candle making, and much more.

Pour as supplied or thicken for brush-on molds using PlatThix liquid thickener.
