TFC silicone rubber Type 1 is a standard silicone for the production of sophisticated, elastic, and hard-wearing shapes with pronounced undercuts. Due to the comparatively low shore hardness of 20, the silicone rubber Type 1 is perfect for smaller objects up to approx. 30 cm. The rubber is mainly used in dental technology, duplication and modeling, and mold-making.
TFC silicone Type 1 can be used to produce both single and multi-part molds. Impressions can be made of original models made of wood, glass, metal, plastic, wax, and ceramic casting compounds. All water-soluble or solvent-containing casting materials can be cast into the molds produced.
The water-soluble casting compounds include, for example, relief casting compounds such as Stewalin, Plastalin Super, Keraflott or gypsum, Keramin, Alabit, modeling and building plaster, cast clay, cement, concrete, etc. For solvent-containing casting compounds, e.g. polyester resin, epoxy resin and PUR resin, the mold should be pretreated with a release agent, since casting resins can lead to embrittlement of the mold after repeated casting. Seed casting compounds (soap-glycerin), for the production of soap or waxes for the production of candles, can also easily be brought into the molds.
Please note that the silicone is not tested for skin and mucous membrane tolerability, nor for use in conjunction with food.
