A new heat-cured, soft silicone rubber formulation developed for lower temperature vulcanizing that produces a mold with much less shrinkage (see table below) than other mold compounds. This new compound is used when shrinkage of a master pattern, used to make additional patterns in a production spincasting mold, must be limited. Shrinkage is so low that it is often unnecessary to use RTV silicones that require vacuum degassing and 24 hour cure cycles. Being a heat cured silicone, Nicem® Green also has physical properties vastly superior to RTV silicones.
During vulcanization, Nicem® Green requires as little as 20% of the pressure required to cure other mold compounds. This lower pressure requirement makes it ideal for delicate patterns that might be destroyed or distorted with standard pressure and temperature settings. Patterns can be made of metal, plastic, resins, butter board, plaster and wood. Each set consists of (2) 9" x 1/2" thick discs.
