Challenge form limitations with mold making silicones from WACKER
Silicone rubber is used in many different mold making techniques for its marked compatibility with common casting materials like plaster, resins, waxes, low-melting metals, concrete and artificial stone.
WACKER's Elastosil M silicone rubber compounds for mold making and prototype molding are extremely versatile and tailor-made for specific applications to deliver accurate reproductions.
Elastosil M is easy to process and economical in use which makes it ideal to produce precision parts, parts requiring close tolerances, high-volume parts and complex shapes.
