NOVOCS™ solvents are low viscosity silicone solvents that evaporate quickly. NOVOCS™ is particulary useful in thinning down Psycho Paint® silicone paint base to apply via brush or airbrush to cured platinum silicone rubber props and prosthetics. When used as a solvent for thinning silicone paints or surface coatings, NOVOCS™ Gloss will leave a gloss finish.
WARNING - FLAMMABLE Liquid and vapor. Keep away from ignition sources and follow precautions for handling flammables.
NOVOCS™ solvents contain no VOC’s.
NOVOCS™ solvents are low viscosity silicone solvents that evaporate quickly.
NOVOCS® and Psycho Paint® fused with Smooth-On platinum silicone to create a perfect bond.
NOVOCS® Matte and Psycho Paint® produce more lifelike effects than ever before.

Jarred Alcala’s exquisitely detailed silicone mask is called “The Juggernaut”. It was made using Ecoflex® 0030 silicone and airbrushed with Psycho Paint®/ NOVOCS® Matte to remove any hint of light reflection. Visit http://www.shatteredfx.com
A user can shrink a silicone rubber mold 18% - 22% by mixing NOVOCS® silicone solvent with the silicone.
Materials should be stored and used in a warm environment (73°F / 23°C). This material has a limited shelf life and should be used as soon as possible. Wear safety glasses, long sleeves and rubber gloves to minimize contamination risk.
Mix the A and B components of two component silicone sytems before adding NOVOCS™. Add the desired proportion of NOVOCS™ solvent to create a thinner silicone mixture which can be brushed or airbrushed onto the surface of a cured silicone casting.
Example Recommended Ratios For Use:
When adding to Psycho Paint, add between 200%-400% NOVOCS™ solvent by weight
When adding to Sil-Poxy, add between 300%-500% NOVOCS™ solvent by weight
Because no two applications are quite the same, a small test application to determine suitability for your project is recommended if performance of this material is in question.
