Non-reactive silicone fluid that will lower the mixed viscosity of tin cure (condensation) or platinum cure (addition) silicone rubber products.
Silicone Thinner™ offers the following advantages:
- A lower mixed viscosity (A+B) means that the rubber will de-air faster when vacuuming.
- Mixed rubber (A+B) will flow better over intricate model detail.
- Silicone Thinner™ will lower the ultimate shore hardness (durometer) of cured silicone rubber.
- Pot life (working time) is increased in proportion to the amount of Silicone Thinner™ used.
Disadvantage: Ultimate tear and tensile strength are reduced in proportion to the amount of Silicone Thinner™ added, however knotty tear properties of the Mold Max™ series rubbers are unaffected.
Moldmaking & Casting Calculators
Estimating the amount of material needed for a project can be a difficult task. Not having enough material or having too much left over is not only frustrating, but costly. To assist you with these calculations, we are happy to provide the following tools.
