URE-FIL® Fillers
 URE-FIL® Fillers
URE-FIL® Fillers
Technical Bulletin
URE-FIL® fillers disperse easily in Smooth-On materials. They can be added to materials in different proportions to achieve a variety of working properties and effects. Some fillers are designed for cost-savings, others are designed for specific casting effects or improved physical properties. Other URE-FIL® fillers are designed specifically for thickening materials for brush-on or trowelable application.

URE-FIL® 3Ceramic filler that is speckled grey in color and will give plastic castings a ceramic or porcelain-like finish. MSDS
URE-FIL® 5Lightweight 'pecan flour' style filler that is your best choice for achieving a wood effect in casting plastics. MSDS
URE-FIL® 7Provides dimensional stability, economy & improved flame resistance to liquid plastics. MSDS
URE-FIL® 9Fumed-silica based thickening agent primarily used with liquid urethane rubbers. MSDS
URE-FIL® 11Fiber-based filler that can be added to Smooth-On urethane and silicone rubbers, urethane plastics and epoxies to thicken for brush-on applications. MSDS
URE-FIL® 15Micro-balloons that can be added to Smooth-On urethane plastics and epoxies to create very light weight castings. MSDS

UVO® UV-Resistant Colorants
 UVO® UV-Resistant Colorants
UVO® UV-Resistant Colorants
Technical Bulletin
MSDS
UVO® Colorants are concentrated, phthalate-free urethane color pigments that resist ultra-violet light.  By adding a small amount of UVO® to a Smooth-On epoxy, urethane rubber, plastic or foam product, these pigment dispersions will yield opaque castings (vs. SO-Strong color tints that can yield translucent urethane castings).  For glowing fluorescent color effects, use Ignite® colorants.

UVO® colorants are highly concentrated, offer excellent dispersion and consistent color. A very small amount will color a proportionally large amount of liquid epoxy or urethane. One drop will color 1 pint (454 grams) of mixed material.  The more you add in proportion to the volume of liquid material, the more dramatic the color effect. Recommended loading range is .01% to 3% of total system weight. Do not overload the liquid system or cure inhibition / oozing may occur.

User determines amount to add;  If this is your first time adding color to an epoxy or urethane system, you may want to test the color effect by adding a few drops to a small amount of material and observe the outcome.  It may take a few test castings to attain the desired color outcome.  Important: Results may vary depending on UV resistance of epoxy or urethane product.


SO-Strong® Color Tints For Urethane Rubber, Plastic, and Foam
 SO-Strong® Color Tints For Urethane Rubber, Plastic, and Foam

Technical Bulletin
MSDS
SO-Strong® liquid urethane colorants can be added to any Smooth-On liquid urethane rubber, urethane plastic or urethane foam (do not use with Smooth-On silicones). They can be used to create a variety of color effects for a wide range of material applications. For glowing fluorescent color effects, use Ignite colorants.

Ignite® Fluorescent Color Pigments
 Ignite® Fluorescent Color Pigments
Ignite® Fluorescent Color Pigments
Technical Bulletin
MSDS
The Ignite® line of liquid fluorescent colorants is compatible with Smooth-On urethane rubbers, urethane plastics, urethane foams (rigid and flexible) and silicones. The fluorescent or "glow" effect is maximized under ultra-violet light or "black light." The most dramatic color effect is realized when an Ignite colorant is used with a clear or translucent urethane rubber (such as Clear Flex 50) or plastic (such as Smooth-Cast 325).

The NEW Ignite® 9 pack gives you the opportunity to experience each color without spending a lot of money.


What Makes Castings Made With Ignite® Pigments Appear To Glow? When you add Ignite fluorescent color to a urethane material, more ultraviolet light from the cured material is visible to your eye vs. castings made with SO Strong® colorants. The casting appears brighter in ambient light and appears to glow under ultraviolet light.

Cryptolyte® UV Glow Additive for Urethanes and Silicones
 Cryptolyte® UV Glow Additive for Urethanes and Silicones
Cryptolyte® UV Glow Additive for Urethanes and Silicones
Technical Bulletin
MSDS
Cryptolyte® is a translucent liquid additive that causes cured Smooth-On silicone rubbers, urethane rubbers, plastics or foams to glow a bright blue under a focused ultra violet light source (blacklight). You will not see the glow effect without an UV light source. When mixed at low percentages it will not affect clarity or color of material. For example, Cryptolyte® can be added to Crystal Clear® water clear resins and the glow effect will not be evident until the casting is illuminated by a UV light source. Important: Best “glow” effect is realized when Cryptolyte® is added to clear (i.e. Sorta Clear silicone or Clear Flex urethane rubber) or translucent materials (i.e. Smooth-Cast 325 resin). Applications include special effects, Halloween mask and prop making, theme displays and security (you can make parts that are virtually undetectable in normal light but glow under UV black lighting).

Warning: This product is flammable. Exercise extreme caution and follow safety protocol for handling flammable liquids. Refer to MSDS for further safety information.

XTEND-IT® Dry Gas Blanket - Extend The Shelf Life Of Urethanes

XTEND-IT® Dry Gas Blanket - Extend The Shelf Life Of Urethanes
Technical Bulletin
MSDS
XTEND-IT® is a dry gas blanket designed to extend the shelf life of moisture sensitive polyurethane products by displacing the air in the container it is sprayed into.

Applying the XTEND-IT® dry gas blanket to the unused portion of a liquid polyurethane, before replacing the lid on the container, will significantly extend the shelf life of the product.

KICK-IT!® Cure Accelerator For Urethane Rubber
 KICK-IT!® Cure Accelerator For Urethane Rubber
KICK-IT!® Cure Accelerator For Urethane Rubber
Technical Bulletin
MSDS
KICK-IT® Cure Accelerator is an additive designed to "accelerate" the cure time of some Smooth-On urethane liquid 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 to Part B by weight and should be thoroughly mixed with Part B before adding Part A. Important: Adding the accelerator drastically reduces the pot life (time you have to mix and pour material) of the liquid rubber product.


SO-FLEX® Softening Agent For Urethane Rubber
 SO-FLEX® Softening Agent For Urethane Rubber
SO-FLEX® Softening Agent For Urethane Rubber
Technical Bulletin
MSDS
So-Flex® is a softening agent that lowers the cured durometer of Smooth-On PMC® and ReoFlex® polyurethane products. For best results, you should use an accurate scale to properly use So-Flex®. So-Flex® should be added to rubber by weight and must be thoroughly mixed (at least one minute) with the appropriate amount of Part B before combining with Part A.

URE-BOND® II Urethane Adhesive
Technical Bulletin
MSDS
URE-BOND® II is a premium performance urethane adhesive compound that offers a strong flexible bond between many different surfaces. URE-BOND is ideal for adhering polyurethane rubber and other polymer products to many types of substrates (such as plaster, wood, cement, stone) and non-porous materials (such as glass, hard plastics and a variety of metals).

URE-BOND® II has also been used to repair torn polyurethane molds on a limited basis (with proper surface preparation). Working time is 5 minutes at room  temperature (72° F / 22° C). Once mixed and applied, URE-BOND® II takes about 60 minutes to cure and yields a strong, flexible bond.
