Repairing a Picture Frame Using Equinox® Silicone Putty
Equinox® Silicone Putty Products are new silicone compounds (platinum catalyst) that can be easily mixed and applied by hand to a variety of surfaces. Equinox® Putty is mixed in equal amounts (1A:1B) by volume. Pot life is about 1 minute with a cure time of about 7 minutes at room temperature (72°F / 23°C). Equinox 40 is a slower version with a 30-minute pot life and 5-hour demold time.

Convenient, No Mess - Fastest, Easiest Way Yet To Make A Mold.  Fast Cure And Slow Cure Versions Available

In this example, Equinox is used to mold a section of an antique wooden picture frame.  A casting is poured into the mold, which is then finished and glued in place to form a perfect repair.
