Platinum Cure Silicone Accessories

Plat-Cat® Platinum Silicone Accelerator
 Plat-Cat® Platinum Silicone Accelerator
Plat-Cat® Platinum Silicone Accelerator
Technical Bulletin
MSDS
Plat-Cat® Platinum Silicone Cure Accelerator is an additive designed to “accelerate” the cure time of Smooth-On platinum silicone rubber products without significantly affecting the ultimate physical properties. This allows for much faster removal (demold) of a part or rubber mold from the original model.

The accelerator is added by weight to Part A and should be thoroughly mixed into Part A before adding Part B.

Note: Adding the accelerator drastically reduces the pot life (time you have to mix and pour material) of the liquid rubber product.

SLIDE® STD Liquid Surface Tension Diffuser

SLIDE® STD Liquid Surface Tension Diffuser
Technical Bulletin
MSDS
SLIDE® STD Liquid Surface Tension Diffuser is an additive for platinum cure silicone rubber that creates a cured silicone piece with greatly reduced surface tension. Cured silicone slides across itself and different surfaces. SLIDE® STD is added as a percentage of Part B. Silicone surface must be exposed to air for 24 hours to bring out slide effect.

Due to its ultra-low surface tension, SLIDE® STD is ideal for creating silicone masks, etc. The surface of a silicone casting created using SLIDE® STD is very low friction, allowing for ease of motion when cast silicone pieces need to glide over surfaces such as skin.

Silicone will yellow over time. If yellowing is undesired, adding a Silc Pig® silicone pigment to the liquid rubber prior to mixing will color the silicone.

Warning – Allergen; people who are allergic to durian, tree nuts and tree nut derivatives or musk thistle seed should avoid contact with this product.

Technical Bulletin
MSDS
Slo-Jo® Platinum Silicone Cure Retarder is an additive designed to extend the pot life (working time) of Smooth-On platinum silicone rubber products and Soama Foama® silicone foam without affecting the ultimate physical properties. The retarder is added by weight to Part B and should be thoroughly mixed into Part B before adding Part A.

Note: Cure time of the platinum silicone rubber will be extended in proportion to the amount of Slo-Jo® added. Adding more than 4% Slo-Jo® of Part B may reduce the ultimate physical properties of the cured rubber.


Slacker® Tactile Mutator
 Slacker® Tactile Mutator
Slacker® Tactile Mutator
Technical Bulletin
MSDS
Slacker® is a one component translucent clear fluid that is added “by volume” to our translucent platinum-cure silicones such as Dragon Skin and Ecoflex products.  Slacker will change the “feel” of the silicone rubber to a softer and more “flesh-like” material. It also alters the rebound properties of the silicone, making it feel more like human tissue.   
 
Slacker® allows the user to vary the degree of tackiness to the cured silicone, allowing for the creation of self-sticking silicone appliances.  The amount of tackiness is in direct proportion to the amount of slacker added.  Pieces created with Slacker will not exude silicone oil, eliminating a common problem with other softening methods.  
 
Slacker® can be added in larger proportions to Smooth-On’s super soft and stretchy platinum silicones (for example,  Ecoflex  00-30)  to  make  silicone  gel  that  can  be  used  to  create  gel-filled  silicone  prosthetic  appliances.  Gel-filled appliances will flex, bend, and even wrinkle like human flesh.  Silicone gels created with Slacker can also be used to create cushioning materials for medical applications (anaplastology).

Psycho Paint® Platinum Silicone Paint Base
 Psycho Paint® Platinum Silicone Paint Base
Psycho Paint® Platinum Silicone Paint Base
Psycho Paint® is a versatile and easy to use platinum silicone paint base developed to help special effects and prosthetic artisans, doll makers, etc. easily create painted-on color effects for their platinum silicone creations. It is a two component translucent clear platinum-cure silicone that is used to make a base for color pigmenting. Once the desired color is attained, Psycho Paint® is thinned with a solvent. Thin layers of paint can be then be applied to a model's surface (made of Dragon Skin®, Ecoflex® or other platinum silicone) using an airbrush.

In addition to painting the exterior of a cast piece, you can apply Psycho Paint® to the inside of a platinum silicone or urethane rubber mold and then cast platinum silicone behind it. It can also be applied by brushing.
