Please contact our office for the next available course.
Courses generaly deal with the different types of Silicone Mould making techniques using our RTV25 and RTV38 as well as the Food Grade Silicone RTV22;
Moulds can also be made with Fast Cast MC14, which is the preferred casting resin for quick models and ornaments.
Other materials that can be dealt with on request are:
Clear doming resins for badges and mosaic work, mainly using LR214 and LH92 or LR151 with EH16 (UV resistant version).
Clear castings can be obtained with a Clear polyester resin CP25 (suitable for plastic or glass moulds) or the Clear Range of Epoxy systems such as LR151 with hardeners (EH230 very slow); EH231 faster. This epoxy system can provide very clear castings, even using silicone moulds.
For UV resistant clear castings, LR151 with EH16 can be used.
Fiberglass based moulds can also be discussed.
MC14 Fast Cast - Glass Laminate MC14 is normally used as a casting resin to make ornamental objects. it has a working time of about 2 minutes ans ets in 10 to 15 minutes. This makes MC14 ideal to make quick supporting shells for Silicone skin moulds. Simply by cutting small pieces of glass ..
RTV25 Silicone Block Mould This type of mould is used for simple flat objects. 1. Stick the object onto a flat board, with hotmelt glue or plasticine. Use plasticien to seal the bottom edges of the object, to prevent RTV25 from getting underneath the object. Refer to photos of the mould to ..
RTV25 Silicone Split Mould A split mould is used when the product lends itself to be moulded with a split line. 1. Build a box around the model, half filled with plasticine. Insert the model into the plasticine, chosing the best possible split line. The wooden box must be well released with a ..
Follow the steps to learn how to make a two-part split mould, using plasticine as a mounting material, followed by a RTV25 Skin Mould supported by a fast cast - fibre glass shell ..
RTV25 Silicone Skin Mould Skin moulds are used to save on the quantity of silicone used. A less expensive material is used to provide the support to our skin mould. Fast Cast MC14 with pieces of fiberglass cloth is used to make a light weight laminate. 1. The original model is firmly glued to ..
