P508 PlatSil Silicone

  • $35.00


Magikmold® P-508 is a platinum-cured, room temperature curing (RTV), translucent silicone rubber designed for the manufacture of high-performing, flexible molds. This two-part (Catalyst & Base), liquid silicone rubber has a Shore Hardness of A8, a pour time of ~20 minutes, and a demold time of ~3-4 hours.

This very soft silicone is popular for making molds of highly detailed and delicate objects (e.g., candle and soap molds).

Magikmold® P-508 molds are commonly used to cast the following materials:

  • Urethane (polyurethane) plastic and rubber
  • Plaster
  • Polyester Casting Resin
  • Cement, Concrete
  • Epoxy
  • Soap
  • Wax
  • Low-Melt Metals

Release agent is not necessary for casting most materials into P-500 Series molds, but for longer mold life with epoxy, polyurethane or polyester resins, a barrier coat or release agent (2500 Release) is recommended.

FOR INDUSTRIAL/PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY.
