Product Description

Ecoflex™ 5

Ecoflex™ rubbers are platinum-catalyzed silicones that are versatile and easy to use. Ecoflex™ rubbers are mixed 1A:1B by weight or volume and cured at room temperature with negligible shrinkage.  Low viscosity ensures easy mixing and de-airing. Dispense using our convenient dispensing cartridges. Cured rubber is very soft, very strong and very “stretchy”, stretching many times its original size without tearing and will rebound to its original form without distortion.

TASK™ 14

TASK™ 14 is a fast setting two-component urethane that cures quickly to black semi-rigid plastic. TASK™ 14 offers a longer pot life (10 minutes) and demold time of 45 minutes.

With a Shore value of 50D, these semi-rigid plastics are used for a variety of industrial applications including fast mold making, fast model duplication, prototyping, durable miniatures, black props and special effects, or making parts that are impact resistant. Fully cured castings are tough, durable and chemical resistant.

For Best Results… Do not cast TASK™ 14 into platinum cure (addition cure) silicone molds.

TASK™ 21

TASK™ 21 is a performance urethane casting resin that has been described by many as having similar performance and mechanical characteristics to ABS plastic, with high compressive and flexural strength. TASK 21 has no odor and is easy to process. Mix ratio is 2A:1B by weight or volume. Pot life is 6 minutes and handling strength is reached in 60 minutes at room temperature (depending on mass and configuration).

TASK 21 features a low mixed viscosity of 500 cps and readily de-airs itself when cast into molds. SO-Strong™ or IGNITE™ colorants can be added for color and a variety of powder fillers can be added to alter performance or appearance characteristics. Applications for TASK 21 include rapid prototyping, casting strong and highly detailed models, making holding / assembly fixtures, figurines and decorative castings.

IMPORTANT - TASK 21 can not be cast into platinum-cure silicone molds. We recommend casting TASK 21 into tin-cure silicone or urethane rubber molds (using a release agent).
