    Field of application

    • Casting of high-value original pieces with accurate detail
    • Production of solid and main moulds
    • Forming with strong undercuts

    Properties

    • High reproduction accuracy and detail reproduction
    • Excellent resilience
    • Very good elasticity and tear resistance
    • Good flow properties
    • Easy demoulding
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        The substrate must be clean, dust-free and dry.

    • Application
      • Application requirements

        Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +5 °C to max. +30 °C

      • Pour or apply by brush

        Reaction time approx. 20 hours

    • Application instructions
      • The addition of up to 1% by mass of Thickening Additive AFM (0738) can increase the viscosity until stability is reached.

        To ensure that the vulcanised material is completely free of bubbles, degas the silicone/hardener mixture in a vacuum prior to use (max. 5 minutes at 10-20 mbar).

        Pourable resins, such as polyesters and polyurethanes, limit the ability to take a large number of impressions due to their aggressive nature.

        When making impression of critical substrates, e.g. materials that are porous, silicate-based or moisture-absorbing, use a silicone-free releasing agent (e.g. wallpaper paste).

        When creating supporting moulds, a suitable release agent must be applied to the outer skin of the silicone mould, e.g. Framework Paste (1121).

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Clean tools immediately after use with thinner and brush cleaner.

        Pull off any cured residue.

    • Storage / shelf life
      • If stored unopened in its original container in a cool, dry place and protected against frost, the product will keep for at least 12 months.

    • Usage
      • Approx. 1.2 kg/m²/mm layer thickness
