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® ONYX™ FAST

Smooth-Cast® ONYX™ is a mercury-free urethane resin that cures at room temperature to a deep black, solid plastic. ONYX™ resins offer the convenience of a 1A:1B by volume mix ratio and have very low viscosities, so they are easy to mix and pour. ONYX™ resins have an ultimate Shore hardness of 80D and offer higher physical properties and higher heat resistance vs. other general purpose resins.ONYX™ FAST resin has a pot life of 2.5 minutes and a cure time of 10-15 minutes. ONYX™ FAST is a good choice for creating fast cold cast bronze, brass, copper, nickel/silver, etc. effects.

Free Form™ AIR

Free Form™AIR is an extremely lightweight epoxy putty suitable for an infinite variety of industrial and art-related applications. This is a low-odor, low shrinkage putty that is unique, inexpensive and easy to use. Free Form™AIR is mixed by hand with a 1A:1B by volume mix ratio. It offers a long working time and cures overnight at room temperature to a hard, rigid epoxy that is very strong. Cured Free Form™AIR is so lightweight, it will float in water. It can be sanded, shaped, and drilled. It will readily accept any paint. Free Form can also be color pigmented with UVO™ or Ignite™ colorants.
