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.

Smooth-Cast® 310

The Smooth-Cast® 300 Series of liquid plastics are ultra-low viscosity casting resins that yield castings that are bright white and virtually bubble free. Vacuum degassing is not necessary. They offer the convenience of a 1A:1B by volume or 100A:90B by weight mix ratio. The differences between them are pot life and demold time.

These resins readily accept fillers (such as URE-FIL® 3 from Smooth-On) and can be colored with SO-Strong® or Ignite® color tints (Smooth-Cast® 325 series accepts pigments better than the Smooth Cast® 300 series). Fully cured castings are tough, durable, machinable and paintable. They resist moisture and mild solvents. Applications for Smooth-Cast® 300 Series Liquid Plastics include reproducing small to medium size sculptures, making prototype models, special effect props and decorative jewelry.

EpoxAmite™ 101

EpoxAmite™ 101 is an easy-to-use liquid epoxy system formulated for a wide variety of fabrication applications. EpoxAmite™ 101 includes the EpoxAmite™ 100 Base and the EpoxAmite™ 101 FAST Hardener.  EpoxAmite™ 101 is unfilled, low in viscosity, odorless and cures at room temperature. Cured epoxy displays exceptional physical and performance properties. It can be sanded, shaped, machined, drilled, tapped and painted.

EpoxAmite™ 101 can be used with reinforcements such as S-Glass, E-Glass, Kevlar and Carbon fibers for lay-up applications or composite parts. EpoxAmite™ 101 can also be mixed with fillers such as fumed silica for gel coat applications. Urefil™ 3, Urefil™ 7 and other fillers can be added for fairing, filleting or bonding applications.

Applications: Wet Lay-Up Lamination, General Bonding & Repair, Clear Coating - Gel Coating, Barrier Coating, Thin-Section Casting, Water Proofing, Patching & Small Laminates 

Also available: EpoxAmite™ 102 MEDIUM SET and EpoxAmite™ 103 SLOW SET
