Simpact® 85A is a Shore 85A urethane rubber that has extraordinary
tear strength as well as high impact and wear resistance.
It is used for a variety of industrial and display applications. It is
easy to color with SO-Strong® color tints or Ignite® color
pigments. This is a low odor, low shrink formulation that is
phthalate free, mercury free and MOCA free.
With a mix ratio of 85A to 100B by weight, components mix and pour
easily. Working time is 4 minutes and handling time is 2 hours. To
reach maximum physical properties, allowing castings to cure for 48
hours at room temperature is
recommended. Cure time can be reduced by
using Kick-it® cure accelerator or by applying mild heat.
Simpact® 85A is ideal for making highly tear and impact resistant props, prototypes and display pieces.
The wildly popular tv show, “TANKED” (seen weekly on Animal Planet)
uses Simpact® 85A to make colorful, indestructible coral display
