Mold Max® silicones (10A-40A) feature high tear strength and are great for production casting of resins, plasters, etc. In this example, a plaster frame is reproduced using Mold Max® 10 silicone. Mold Max 10 is the softest of the Mold Max series rubbers.
When using a silicone rubber, it is not necessary to use a release agent, so the surface of the antique frame is not affected. The softness of the Mold Max 10 also allows it to stretch around the deep undercuts of this highly carved antique.
