A very soft, squishy silicone gel which has a wide range of uses from cushioning applications to creating skin effects, other movie special effects and animatronics.
The two odourless and non-toxic components mix easily with a simple mixing ratio of 1:1 and because of the very low viscosity can be used without processing in a vacuum chamber.
The cured rubber is a translucent beige/off white colour that is a very flexible, elastic material with high tensional and tear strength. There is almost no shrinkage (0.1%) and excellent reproduction of fine detail.. Being an addition/platinum cure rubber it has excellent dimensional stability and will resist deforming providing a long library life. As a gel it can remain slightly tacky which could be an advantage if you need it be non-slip. If you prefer it to be non-tacky then dust it with talcum powder or corn starch. The silicone renew powders sold to maintain silicone sex toys is often just corn starch.
The colour of the cured rubber can be changed with the addition of a colour pigment during the mixing of the two components. We have a range of compatible colour pigments click here
When using this material to cast into a silicone mould a release agent is required click here
It can be softened to your own requirements using this softening additive click here
Can be made thixotropic for applying to vertical surfaces or to over head objects click here

- Special effects
A release agent will not create a sufficient barrier to prevent cure inhibition but a layer of paint will. If the paint is solvent based allow sufficient time for the solvent to completely evaporate off as that too can inhibit the cure
Great care must be taken when handling and mixing all addition-cured silicone elastomer systems. All the mixing tools (vessels and spatulas) should be clean and constructed in materials which do not interfere with the curing mechanism. The cure of the rubber can be inhibited by the presence of compounds of nitrogen, sulphur, phosphorus and arsenic; organotin catalysts and PVC stabilisers; epoxy resin catalysts and even contact with materials containing these substances e.g. moulding clays, sulphur vulcanised rubbers, condensation cure silicone rubbers, some printed plastics, onion and garlic.
