Mould Making Materials

Because of the unique chemistry of silicone, Room Temperature Vulcanising (RTV) silicone rubber is widely recognised as the highest quality and most versatile mould making material available. Due to its inherent heat resistance, exceptionally low shrinkage and resistance to the vast majority of organic and inorganic materials, silicone rubber is an ideal solution for a wide range of moulding requirements. Polyester resins, epoxy resins, low melting metals (such as pewter), acrylics, urethane foams, concrete, waxes and plasters, can all be formed using silicone rubber moulds.

Typical Applications of Silicone Mould Making Rubber

Used in a wide variety of manufacturing industries to create moulds to make parts such as:

  -    Prototype moulds for automotive lighting, consoles and radiator grilles
  -    Prototype moulds for home appliances
   -   Prototype moulds for electronics and televisions
   -   Prototype moulds for mobile phones and copy machines

Key Characteristics

Techsil's silicone moulding rubbers are supplied as two part liquids. When the two parts are mixed the rubber cures at room temperature, without releasing heat, to form a strong, dimensionally stable mould. These mouldmaking silicones contain a wide variety of properties suitable for uses in different applications:

   -   Oil tolerance
   -   High tensile and tear strength
   -   Good elongation
   -   Different hardnesses
   -   Some can have an accelerated cure with heat
   -   Some come with ‘oil bleed’ for excellent long term release properties to extend the life of the mould

High-strength silicone rubber may potentially achieve high levels of detail work from the master moulded part, even after long-term use.  Suitable for mould making of intricate patterns with extremely good pick up of fine details. Softer grades are better suited for use where there are deep undercuts.
