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.
