Casting Resins

Casting Resins

Techsil supply two component thermoset casting resin systems from BJB in the USA and range from soft gels to rigid, stiff plastics and foams. The liquid synthetic resin is poured into a suitable mould (usually silicone) and cures in place. These material systems are available with a variety of shore hardnesses, work times, cure times, colours, operating temperatures and other property ranges.

In addition, Techsil supplies suitable tooling products that inform the look and performance of many modern design concepts, whether providing solutions for diagnostic medical equipment housings or featuring in materials that go to sea in oceanographic exploration.

 

Typical Applications of Casting Resins

Used extensively across different sectors and industries, examples of typical applications include creating one-off or short run components for proof of concept and rapid prototyping, pre-production models, scaled prototypes, functional or aesthetic modelling in industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical devices, production parts and electronics.

Creative applications include visual and special effects models, such as realistic flexible skins, dummies for medical applications, prosthetics, horror movies or special effects.

Examples of typical uses and benefits include:

   -   Fast casting
   -   High quality reproduction
   -   Easy replication of desired properties from gel-like qualities through to rubbers and materials with rigid structures

Specific applications include:

   -   Prototypes
   -   Model making
   -   Medical devices
   -   Special Effects
