Castaldo® QuickSil® molds are not weak, delicate prototypes that can be used only once or twice. They can produce dozens or hundreds of injections, depending on the complexity of the design. They do not deteriorate or become soft over time but instead last for decades.
QuickSil makes production molds but is also ideal for short runs or the last-minute emergencies that are typical in any jewelry manufacturing business.
QuickSil is a two-part room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone rubber putty that is easily mixed by hand. It is not a liquid rubber, making it ideal for those without a vulcanizer or a vacuum pump.
Molds cure ready-to-use with 0% rubber shrinkage in only 15 minutes at room temperature.
Castaldo® QuickSil® is the easy way to make molds and cast a wide variety of objects. Because of its heat resistance low-temperature metals such as pewter and lead can be poured directly into the rubber molds. Other common casting materials include injection wax, resin compounds, ceramic materials, soap and candle wax.
QuickSil is ideal for use with metal clay, either to make a mold of an existing object and then reproduce it or to mold an original creation made in metal clay for further reproduction.
