Description

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 Thinnerâ„¢ will lower the ultimate shore hardness (durometer) of cured silicone rubber.
  • Pot life (working time) and cure 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.

*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.

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.
