Mold Max Silicones are tin-cured silicone rubber compounds that have exceptional working properties and library life. Mold Max silicones feature Smooth-On’s exclusive “Libra” catalyst for long library life.
Mold Max silicones can be pigmented with Silc Pigsilicone colorants.
Pot life for the pourable silicones is 45 minutes and they cure overnight at room temperature.
Mold Max Silicones will reproduce the finest detail and are suitable for a variety of industrial and art related applications including making molds for reproducing prototypes, furniture, sculpture and architectural elements.
Mold Max 10, 20, 25 and 30 silicones can be thickened with THI-VEX® additive for brush-on applications.
(Note: THI-VEX is NOT compatible with Mold Max 40 or 60).
Mold Max 60 offers highest heat resistance for casting metal (see separate technical bulletin)
Mold Max Silicones can be used to cast a variety of materials including wax, gypsum, low melt alloys/metals and urethane, epoxy or polyester resins (without using a release agent).
Important; you must weigh Part A & B components using a gram scale to be successful with Mold Max® silicones.
Vacuum degassing mixed material using a vacuum pump and chamber to remove entrapped air is recommended.
