Our silicone rubbers differ largely in their flexibility, strength and viscosity, allowing you to choose the best one for your mould. All of our silicone rubber are cold cure rubbers, meaning that they vulcanise at room temperature. These are suitable for working at temperatures between -20ºC and 250ºC, making them ideal for most applications. Our RTV-65 silicone rubber, meanwhile, is a firm rubber able to work up to 316ºC. This added durability allows it to be used with metals such as tin alloys and pewter.
To support our silicone rubber selection we are also proud to provide our customers with a range of fantastic supporting accessories to help you mould your silicone rubber. Some of the accessories you can find in this section include Thixo additive, which can be added to your silicone rubber to thicken it. We also provide a choice of adhesive sealants and release agents.
