SC 5001 Silicone Thickener
SC-5001 is a thickening agent that can be used with BJB’s TC-5024 or TC-5050. SC-5001 should be added after parts A and B have been thoroughly mixed. Adding 2% - 5% SC-5001 to the total weight of the A/B mixture is recommended. At 2%, the mixture will have a cold cream consistency. At 5%, the mixture will be more like peanut butter. Application procedures will vary depending on the users’ preference. Typically, the model will be first coated with the silicone without adding SC-5001. Secondary coats with a 2% - 5% level of SC-5001 should be applied only when the previous layer has gelled to a point that it will not be disturbed by further applications. SC-5001 should be stirred before adding to the silicone mixture. See Mixing Instructions for application guidelines.
