Silicone Thinner™ offers the following advantages:

  • A lower mixed viscosity (A+B) means that the rubber will de-air faster when vacuuming.
  • Mixed rubber (A+B) will flow better over intricate model detail.
  • Silicone Thinner™ will lower the ultimate shore hardness (durometer) of cured silicone rubber.
  • Pot life (working time) is increased in proportion to the amount of Silicone Thinner™ used.

Disadvantage: Ultimate tear and tensile strength are reduced in proportion to the amount of Silicone Thinner™ added, however knotty tear properties of the Mold Max™ series rubbers are unaffected.
