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.
