A pourable mold rubber that vulcanizes at room temperature without pressure, RTV Silicone is a 0% shrinkage 28 durometer, condensation (tin) cure rubber that cures in 16 hours. While this rubber can render a wax pattern of exceptional detail, it can also withstand the casting temperature of most tin alloys, making it an ideal medium for prototype casting. A two-part mold can be made by pouring mold halves on successive days. When you need to reproduce a pattern that cannot withstand the heat and stress of vulcanization, RTV Silicone is the ideal mold rubber. Furnished in 1 lb. cans Activator packaged separately..
Mix 10 parts silicone to 1 part catalyst. Please follow the “NEW” ratio of 10:1 that is on the lid of the can.
