Making a Brush‑On Mold Using Dragon Skin® Silicone Rubber

Overview

Dragon Skin® 10 FAST is a high performance platinum cure silicone rubber that can be mixed 1A:1B by weight or volume and cures at room temperature with negligible shrinkage to a Shore 10A. Cured Dragon Skin® is very soft, very strong and very “stretchy”. It will stretch many times its original size without tearing and will rebound to its original form without distortion.

This stretchiness makes Dragon Skin® 10 FAST ideal for creating one piece glove molds.  A Dragon Skin® mold can be turned completely inside out without risk of tearing. This means castings can be removed without cutting the mold, leaving no visible flashing common with many mold configurations
