How To Use SLIDE® STD Surface Tension Diffuser

Overview

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.
