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.

EpoxAcast™ 655 + 102 Hardener

EpoxAcast655 (formerly Metalset™ A-30) is a versatile aluminum filled castable epoxy that is very hard and strong. It is dimensionally stable, even when mass cast up to 512 in3 / 8,390 cm3.

TASK™ 16

TASK™16 is a low odor, fast-setting Shore 80A/30D urethane that offers very high tear strength, impact resistance and wear resistance. TASK™16 is phthalate free, mercury free and MOCA free. Mixed one part A to two parts B by weight, TASK™16 pours easily. Working time is 6 minutes and handling time is 90 minutes at room temperature. Cured rubber has exceptional performance characteristics and dimensional stability. TASK™16 can be colored with SO‑Strong™ or Ignite™ colorants.

TASK™16 is suitable for making fast mechanical parts, gaskets, wheels and pullies, impact resistant props, and archival master models. It is also used to make fast, wear resistant rubber molds for casting concrete or concrete stamping pads. TASK™16 is also an excellent choice for rotocasting to create hollow semi-rigid castings.

IMPORTANT: Cured TASK™16 will inhibit the cure of liquid platinum silicone. You can not pour platinum silicone into cured TASK™16. Tin silicone must be used if you intend to pour silicone against cured TASK™16.
