Tin Cure Silicone Rubber T-Flow series — (Our MOST popular item), RECOMMEND

T-Flow series Tin Cure Silicone for Mold is a general-purpose RTV silicone rubber which exhibits excellent tear strength, long library life, and accurate detail reproduction. 

T-Flow series Tin cure silicone for mold is a condensation cured silicone (tin catalyzed ) It is used to make rubber molds that can be used to cast polyurethanes, epoxy’s, polyester’s, cement, concrete, soap, wax, plaster, etc.. 

It is easy to mix and de-air, and will cure at room temperature over virtually any surface. T-Flow Series Tin cure silicone for mold is extremely useful for applications where superior physical properties are required.

Vacuum degassing mixed material using a vacuum pump and chamber to remove entrapped air is recommended.

Tin cure silicone for mold

1, Features of T-Flow series Silicone for Mold

  • High flowability, pourable
  • High strength
  • High elasticity, for easy removal of, complex replica parts
  • Less shrinkage
  • Outstanding release properties

2, Typical Uses & Casting Materials

T-Flow series Silicone for Mold is designed for molding polyurethanes, polyester resins, plasters, waxes, soaps, paraffin, gypsum, concrete, liquid plastics, as well as for the production of souvenirs, sculptures, figurines and other handicrafts

Normally, different size of silicone mold should be select according to different product’s features.
For example :

  • For products size ( within 20 cm ) :
    With fine designs, soft silicone is suitable, suggest 10-20 shore A.
  • For products size ( 20cm-80cm ) :
    With fine designs, suggest 20-25 shore A.
    With simple designs, suggest 25-30 shore A.
  • For products size ( 80cm-150cm ) :
    With fine designs, suggest 25 shore A.
    With simple designs, suggest 30-35 shore A.
  • For products size ( more than 150cm ) :
    With fine designs, suggest 25-28 shore A.
    With simple designs, suggest 30-35shore A.

Viscosity testing of T-Flow series Silicone for Mold

Tear strength testing of T-Flow series Silicone for Mold

3, Instruction

  1. Stir Part A well before use, shake Part B catalyst container well before use.
  2. Weigh 100 Part A to 2~3 Part B using an accurate scale and a clean mixing container.
  3. Vigorously mix and scrape walls of the container, continue mixing until uniform.
  4. Place the mixture in a vacuum chamber & degass. If without a chamber, Pour the mixture 2-3 inches above the pattern in a thin stream.
  5. Allow the silicone to cure 2-4 hours and demold with care.

4, Important tips

  • Before use, read the operation manual, please.
  • Before large production, a small-scale test is recommended.
  • Mixing ratio must be accurate, recommend mixing ratio is A:B=100:2~3(by weight), If curing too fast, please reduce the ratio of catalyst to 1% or less, then Stir Part A and Part B completely.
  • Use a vacuum to de-gas this product before use under pressure. Vacuum silicone for 2-3 minutes
  • This product has a limited shelf life. Use it as soon as possible after opening.
  • Always tightly reseal containers after use. Air, moisture or other contamination causes a reduction in reactivity over time.

6, Storage & shelf-life

12 months in unopened containers when properly stored.

Super-Silicon cannot guarantee the shelf life of opened or repackaged units.
Recommended storage temperature range: 10°C – 25°C. SuperSilicon™ should be stored in closed containers out of direct sunlight and away from direct sources of heat. Always tightly reseal containers after use. Air, moisture or other contamination causes a reduction in reactivity over time.

Mold Making Materials COMPARISON

Tin cure silicone VS. Platinum cure silicone

Type
Advantages
Disadvantages
Casting materials
Tin-Cured Silicone
High strength, Cost-effective
Shrinks on cure (~0.3%), Cured rubber has limited storage life, Not food-grade
Most materials, especially resins, foams, plaster, wax, concrete etc.
Platinum-Cured Silicone

No shrink on cure, Cured rubber has long storage life, Excellent chemical resistance & age resistance, Food-grade skin safe, 1:1 simple mix

Cure inhibited by some materials, a slight expensive than tin cure silicone
Most materials, especially resins, foams, plaster, wax, concrete etc. and some low-melt metals and food grade products mould.
