Moldmaking

Stronger Molds, Better Replicas

The art of moldmaking can be tricky. Whether architectural molding, rapid prototyping or artistic replication, all of these applications require tough-but-flexible molds that can produce high-quality replicas, no matter the level of intricacy.

Moldmaking silicone rubbers from Dow are up to the task across many industries, as they are compatible with a wide range of casting materials and can be tailored to fit your molding needs.

Why Silicones?

Not only do moldmaking silicone rubbers offer flexibility to reduce de-molding and stress problems, but they also exhibit excellent natural release characteristics and resistance to most chemicals. They can also be used with masters made of stone, glass, wood, metal, wax, ceramic, plaster and clay in a wide range of service temperatures.

Which Silicones?

SILASTIC™ moldmaking silicone rubbers are easy-to-use, two-part RTV-curing materials that hold severe undercuts and resist tearing with repeated use.
