RapiSkin RTV Silicone Rubber. Ultrafast cure and platinum cured as well. This product is compatible with our addition cure rubbers and our value range rubbers (where value is used as a secondary coat - do not use in top of value, cure inhibition is possible).
With a potlife of just 4 minutes, cure can be reached in under ten minutes with the introduction of heat from a hairdrier or heat gun. Please use caution when heating as this can cause air bubbles to form under the set silicone when used on a porous substrate.
If you are looking to make a skin mould but are bored sitting around waiting for the flash coat to go off before application of the thixo layer(s) this is a great product to be using. Being plat cure, it should also extend the life of you mould when using TOMPS value as the thixo layer!
Clear in thin section allowing you to see trapped air. To retard the set, chill the parts in a sealed container in the fridge. Please test a small amount before committing to large mixes, the system is extremely fast and can catch out even advanced users. Our technical team do not recommend a mix larger than 500g (250g each part).
Can have silicone pigments added to help with ensuring a complete mix. Both parts can be coloured prior to mix to help with ensuring the silicone is mixed but note that it then becomes opaque and trapped air is impossible to see.
