Mold Star® silicones cure to soft, strong rubbers which are tear resistant and exhibit very low long-term shrinkage. Molds made with Mold Star® will last a long time in your mold library and are good for casting wax, gypsum, resins, concrete and other materials. Cured Mold Star® rubber is heat resistant up to 450°F (232°C) and is suitable for casting low-temperature melt metal alloys. Note: Mold Star® rubbers are not intended for brush-on mold making.
