Kit consists of 250g of PART A and 250g of PART B
Total kit volume 471ml
PART A and PART B are both clear liquids which are odourless and non-toxic. They react to form a flexible, elastic, transparent material with outstanding release properties, a high chemical resistance and a temperature resistance of 200°C. There is practically no shrinkage (0.08%) and excellent reproduction of fine detail. For optimal clarity try to keep mould walls to a maximum of 10mm thick. This rubber is suitable for casting a wide range of materials please see below for more details.
Available in three hardnesses; soft medium and firm. The soft is better suited to moulding delicate, fragile items where the rubber needs to be soft and flexible enough to peel off without damaging the casting. The medium is suitable for the majority of cases.

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, onion and garlic.
