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.

Rubber Glass™

Rubber Glass™ is a platinum-catalyzed silicone rubber product developed specifically for special effects and display applications. Two liquids (1 Part A + 1 Part B) are mixed together and poured into a container.

The mixture cures overnight to a solid water clear rubber that can then be easily broken or “crumbled” into pieces that look exactly like broken glass, ice or diamonds. Vibrant colors are possible by adding Silc-Pig™ liquid color pigments.

Rubber Glass™ can be used to create a variety of special effects (i.e. simulated broken glass where human contact is required) and model effects (i.e. simulated ice or water). It can also be used for electronic encapsulation applications.
