Mold rubbers deliver controlled shrinkage, excellent cutting qualities, high tear resistance and elongation, and excellent fill and detail reproduction. Because our formulations contain certain waxes, oils and antioxidants, your molds will enjoy many, many years of production life. Modern chemistry permits an uncured shelf life of 7 years or more, finished life of over 20 years.
LSLT-160™ is designed to provide extremely low shrink (.64%) and low 160°F (71°C) cure capability, while maintaining very high tear resistance. Molds can be made from waxes without special pre-treatment with any kind of release agent. Use Teflon spray with resin models. Since LSLT-160™ has a high affinity for aluminum and stainless steel mold plates, each box contains a supply of reusable heat resistant release paper. Do not attempt to vulcanize LSLT-160 without using the release liners, as the mold will adhere to the plates. As an alternative you can use our Teflon spray, if you wish. To ensure ease of mold removal, spray the inner edges of the mold frame. Do not use silicone spray as it will retard the cure.
