RTV Silicone Moulding Rubber 5.15kg kit

£54.00

5kg Silicone + 150g Catalyst

 Total Volume 4.76 Litres

The cure time can be adjusted by varying the amount of catalyst
A ratio 0f 4% catalyst (4g catalyst per 100g rubber) = Pot life 4-6 minutes - Cure time 1.5 hours
A ratio 0f 3% catalyst (3g catalyst per 100g rubber) = Pot life 15-20 minutes - Cure time 3hours
A ratio 0f 2% catalyst (2g catalyst per 100g rubber) = Pot life 25-30 minutes - Cure time 7 hours

*Supplied with 3% worth of catalyst*


Newly formulated to be of the highest quality comparable to other leading brands.

The catalyst has been formulated to pose minimal risk to the user and is non-toxic, non-flammable and virtually odourless unlike the majority of other condensation cure silicones on the market.
The two components mix easily by hand and because of the low viscosity can be used without processing in a vacuum chamber. The cured rubber is a flexible, elastic material with exceptional tensional and tear strength. It has a long mould life, almost no shrinkage (0.2%) and excellent reproduction of fine detail. Supplied with a purple catalyst which provides a visual aid to ensure that the material is thoroughly mixed. A clear catalyst is available on request.
