Mould Making for Construction Applications
Statues, Sanitaryware, Facades, Faux Stone, etc. made from Gypsum, Cement, FRP, GRC and other materials
This is one of the most common applications of Silicone RTV. The shift of focus from pure functionality to aesthetics and fine design has been made possible with Silicone RTVs. Shapes, materials and patterns have become more intricate, increasing the importance of superior quality materials like ours which offer these advantages:
Thixotropic grades available
Due to the sheer size of some of the moulds, it is not practical to make block moulds. Fortisil has brushable and sprayable grades which minimize the usage of Silicone, albeit giving a very good result.
High flexibility and tear strength
Moulds can be stretched 3 - 6 times their original size to demould a casting without damage. When stored properly, they can be reused even after 20 years.
Cost effective condensation cure grades
High performance condensation cure grades which offer a long working time are the best option in this price sensitive sector. Also a good option to avoid inhibition.
Good compatibility with casting materials and high casting output
In this application, casting materials are usually mixed with water. They also release a high amount of heat. This makes Silicone the only feasible option for long term use, easily surpassing the performance of other rubbers such as nitrile, latex & polyurethane.
