Support Material Giving you Fits?? 

Inhibition from your printed pieces can give you fits!  Support material can cause your silicone mold to be useless.  Perhaps it is time to evaluate XP-696 and XP-697, two platinum cured silicones developed to decrease inhibition issues, especially when working with 3 D printed parts.  Although not 100% (what is?), many of our clients who suffered from this problem have found some relief when using these two silicones. See our data sheets, XP-696 and XP-697, then give us a call.

    XT-739 Sprayed!  Looking to formulate a better silicone with longer library life, we developed a product that does NOT utilize the library life decreasing products such as thixotropic additives and fast curing catalysts yet can hang on vertical surfaces without dripping.  Even we were surprised a the detail (no air), obtained with a simple air hopper gun.  After mixing the base and the activator and placing it into the gun's hopper, we sprayed a very light coat on our released pattern.  When the XT-739 was "tack" free, another coat was applied using a putty knife.  This silicone uses 179 A, which is an activator developed years ago to offer an extended library life to tin cured systems.  For more information, see our data sheet, XT-739.
