This video demonstrates the effect of SLIDE™ Surface Tension Diffuser on platinum silicone.
SLIDE™ STD Liquid Surface Tension Diffuser is an additive for platinum cure silicone rubber that creates a cured silicone piece with greatly reduced surface tension. Cured silicone slides across itself and different surfaces.
SLIDE™ STD is added as a percentage of Part B. Silicone surface must be exposed to air for 24 hours to bring out slide effect.
Due to its ultra-low surface tension, SLIDE™ STD is ideal for creating silicone masks, etc. The surface of a silicone casting
created using SLIDE™ STD is very low friction, allowing for ease of motion when cast silicone pieces need to glide over surfaces such as skin.
