Smooth-Cast® plastics offer tremendous versatility and economy. They are easy to use and available as either rigid or semi-rigids. You can add different colors and/or fillers for an infinite variety of mind-blowing effects. Perfect for casting detailed models, prototypes, props and cast effect pieces.
Smooth-Cast® 300, 300Q, 305, and 310 are ultra-low viscosity casting resins that offer the convenience of a 1:1 mix ratio by volume and yield castings that are bright white, tough, durable, machinable, paintable, and virtually bubble free.
Easier to color than our 300 Series using SO‑Strong®, UVO® or Ignite® colorants. Smooth-Cast® 320, 321, and 322 also readily accept fillers (such as URE‑FIL® 3, 5 and 7). Applications include reproducing small to medium size sculptures, making prototype models, special effect props, decorative jewelry, and taxidermy (bones, antlers, teeth etc.).
Developed specifically for adding color pigments and fillers to achieve a true color representation or filler effect. Small amounts of SO-Strong®, UVO® or Ignite® colorants will yield accurate, vivid colors from cured castings. Ideal for creating marble and woodgrain casting effects, or duplicating the look of real metal by adding bronze, brass or other metal powder.
Higher physical properties and higher heat resistance vs. other general purpose resins (up to 250°F/121°C if post cured). Because ONYX® is a fast curing resin and becomes hard quickly, it is also great for doing fast cold cast bronze, brass, copper, nickel/silver and other metals.
Smooth-Cast® 45D, 57D, 60D, 61D, 65D and 66D are low-cost urethane casting resins that cure quickly to semi-rigid plastics that offer excellent impact resistance. Smooth‑Cast® 65D has a unique gradual cure profile making it ideal for making lightweight, hollow rotational castings.
Smooth‑Cast® 380 and 385 are mineral filled casting resins that are very hard, durable, and cure with low shrinkage. Smooth‑Cast® 380 features ultra high density and very low cost. Smooth‑Cast® 385 has high compressive and flexural strength. Ideal for making industrial parts, foundry patterns, vacuum forming molds, and some ceramic applications.
