tinsil-70-seriesThese tin-cured (condensation-cure) silicone mold rubbers are soft to mid-range hardness, high-performance, room temperature curing systems offering excellent flexibility and toughness. Molds can be made from relatively simple models as well as highly detailed models with undercuts.

Features

  • Shore A10 to A60 hardness liquid mold rubbers
  • High-strength
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Reproduces finest detail
  • Release agent not necessary for more applications
  • Can be accelerated for rapid cure
  • Ideal for the most demanding resin casting application
  • These rubbers can be poured as supplied or thickened with TinThix liquid thickener for brush-on molds. A brushable/sprayable rubber called TinSil Brush/Spray 25 is available for use by hand or with low cost, portable equipment.

Typical Uses

 

NOTE: TinSil molds can inhibit the following casting materials: polyurethane rubbers and Poly-Optic 14-Series Casting Resins. This is especially the case in new tin-cured molds. Do not cast platinum-cured silicone in TinSil molds; they will not cure properly. Consider a platinum silicone rubber when using these casting materials.
