Mold Max® RTV silicone rubbers will reproduce the finest detail from a variety of industrial and art related applications including reproducing prototypes, furniture, sculpture and architectural elements. Use them to cast a variety of materials including wax, gypsum, low melt alloys/metals and urethane, epoxy or polyester resins (without using a release agent).
Used in various production applications from small to large scale like making architectural elements. Mold Max® 10, 20, 25 and 30 silicone can be thickened with THI-VEX® additive for brush-on applications.
Exhibits very low long-term shrinkage. XLS® II molds last longer than other silicones in production when casting chemically harsh resins such as epoxies and polyesters as well as urethane foams.
Offers low viscosity, fast cure and long library life. Mold Max® 14 NV does not require vacuum degassing and will reproduce the finest detail.
Self-thickens for making fast brush-on molds of almost any model. 4 thin layers is all that is necessary to make a strong and durable production mold for casting wax, gypsum, concrete or resins.
Mold Max® 10T, 15T and 27T allow for an infinite number of color effects that can be achieved by adding Silc Pig® silicone pigments, Ignite® liquid fluorescent colorants or Cast Magic® powders.
Formulated for applications requiring high heat resistance (up to 560°F/294°C) including making foundry patterns, flat pattern reproductions and casting low-melt metal alloys such as tin and pewter.
