Silicone Thinner™

24.00 (ex. VAT)

Silicone Thinner™ is a non-reactive silicone fluid that will lower the mixed viscosity of tin cure (condensation) or platinum cure (addition) silicone rubber products.

Features

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.

Description

Instructions

Materials should be stored and used in a warm environment (73° F / 23° C). This material has a limited shelf life and should be used as soon as possible. Wear safety glasses, long sleeves and rubber gloves to minimize contamination risk.

*Silicone Thinner® is added as a percentage of the total Part A+Part B rubber system. An accurate gram scale must be used. Weigh out and pre-mix required amount of Silicone Thinner® with Part A of silicone rubber before adding Part B. Mix all components thoroughly and vacuum as directed on mold rubber technical bulletin.

It is not recommended to exceed 10% by weight of total system (A+B).

Because no two applications are quite the same, a small test application to determine suitability for your project is recommended if performance of this material is in question.
