Castaldo® LiquaFast Ice® Molding Rubber

LiquaFast Ice®  from Castaldo® is a transparent two–part 0% shrinkage RTV silicone molding rubber that cures very rapidly at normal room temperatures and cures even faster at slightly warmer temperatures. That means that you can make a mold from your CAD CAM, RP and SLA models in the morning, shoot waxes 30 minutes later and cast them that afternoon. No more waiting! LiquaFast Ice® makes strong, tough, tear-resistant permanent molds that last and last and do not become soft with age. Works well with all RP types, including hard-to-mold Solidscape® designs. LiquaFast Ice's® low viscosity makes it easy to measure, mix and pour. Normal cure time is only 60 – 90 minutes. Faster cure is possible at only 50˚ C. / 120˚ F. Instructions. Part A MSDS.
