Silicon mold is a special plastic injection mold for making various crafts. It offers great flexibility, tear strength, chemical resistance, and release properties. It can be copied with silicon rubber without considering the draft angle, without affecting the dimensional accuracy, with good segmentation, and can be directly poured as a whole without separating the upper and lower molds. Silicone molds can be used to cast a variety of materials, including polyurethane, polyester and epoxy resins, polyurethane foam, plaster, wax, concrete, low melting metals, and more. Silicone molds are favored by casters because they are easy to use and don’t require much mold release.
Before anyone can even begin with the process of creating silicone molds, it’s important to have a walk through with the needed materials and equipment. If you intend to create silicone molds regularly, most of this equipment are those that you can use over and over again, check the list as below:
- A knife, a scalpel, a pair of cutting pliers, a file, a screw driver, and a spatula for mixing.
- A base plate, adjustable mold wall, thin wire, the master itself, and spacers.
- Contact paper, paper towels, 2 mixing beakers, a tube with a funnel, masking tape, plaster, and super glue.
