Silicone for mold making by pouring way
Step 1 Handle the original mold
Choose a prefect original mold, Manually polish and smooth the model, clean the surface and dry it. Fixed the original mold in a smooth wooden board, and using 4 pieces wooden board around it to make a square frame
Brushing the release agent evenly on the surface of original mold and wooden board.
4 kinds release agent we often used in condensation silicone mold: Vaseline, soap water, detergent, liquid paraffin.(silicone oil also can be used as release agent)
Step 2 Weight part A & part B according to the mix ratio recommended
Weighting two parts in Electronic scale with mix ratio 100:2~3
Eg: Take 100g part A and 2~3g part B
Step 3 Stirring evenly
Remember to mix part A and part B evenly, otherwise the silicon rubber will be partly solidified and bring problems in your final operation. What’s more, the finished molds will meet a short life. All of these will cause a waste of silicon rubber.
Step 4 Vacuum pumping
For releasing the air bubbles, after mixing evenly, put the mixture in to vacuum pumping for 3-5 minutes, without exception, this step takes less than 10 minutes. Otherwise, it will cause cross linking reaction, and no more further steps will be available.
Step 5 Pouring
Pouring the silicone rubber to the frame from a corner, make the silicone rubber flow to the frame smooth.
Step 6 demoulding
After 4-6 hours later, can demould the silicone mold, It’s will be better for mold to demould after 24 hours
