Our new PlatSil Gel-0030 is a casting silicone that is formulated to be soft (S) and low viscosity. This silicone was formulated primarily for casting applications such as medical simulators, dolls, masks, and prosthetics.
PlatSil Gel-0030 has a 45 minute working time and a 4 hour demold time. Like our other translucent SPFX silicones, Gel-0030 may be pigmented to simulate organic tissue using our silicone pigments
Properties unique to PlatSil Gel-0030
- Easy to pour. Gel-0030 is VERY low viscosity to allow for long pour time when casting into complicated molds.
- May be thickened. Gel-0030 is very low viscosity but can still be thickened with TinThix thickener for brush-on applications such as patching and seaming on masks or cast parts.
- Relatively fast demold. Despite its long working time, Gel-0030 may be demolded in 4 hours allowing for fast turn-around time in production.
- High tear strength. Most mask applications will not require any reinforcement fabric
