Silicone Thinner®

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.

  • Silicone Thinner /500ml

    used to lower the viscosity of addition and condensation cure silicones. Also lowers Shore Hardness.

    23,85 EUR (Price exclusive 21% VAT)

  • Silicone Thinner Gallon Kit 3,6 kgs.

    used to lower the viscosity od addition and condensation cure silicones. Also lowers Shore Hardness.

    104,30 EUR (Price exclusive 21% VAT)

  • Silicone Thinner 5-gallon pail

    used to lower the viscosity od addition and condensation cure silicones. Also lowers Shore Hardness.

    289,15 EUR (Price exclusive 21% VAT)

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 Thinner® will lower the ultimate shore hardness (durometer) of cured silicone rubber.
Pot life (working 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, however knotty tear properties of the Mold Max® series rubbers are unaffected.
Instructions

Materials should be stored and used in a warm environment (73° F / 23° C). This material has a limited shelf life and should be used as soon as possible. Wear safety glasses, long sleeves and rubber gloves to minimize contamination risk.

*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. Mix all components thoroughly and vacuum as directed on mold rubber technical bulletin.

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.
