Soft, Stretchy Dragon SkinŽ Rubber Keeps Production Moving
THE PROJECT: reproduce an extremely rare hand carved wood collection from the 17th century.
THE PROBLEM: The customer wanted seamless castings to maintain the integrity of the original sculptures. The wood cravings had deep undercuts and the pieces needed to fit together precisely, so shrinkage was also a big concern.
THE SOLUTION:  Enter Dragon Skin® platinum silicone rubber, extremely soft and stretchy allowing for a perfect one piece glove mold to be made with negligible shrinkage.  “Making multiple glove molds saved us a ton of time and money by not having to clean any seam lines.” Bill Klopping,  Owner - Beyond Designs,  Walton, NY
