Rubber Molds For Production Casting

Make master patterns for rubber molding with 3D printing for faster iteration and lower costs. Use the masters to create molds that produce waxes in quantity for investment casting. Standard Resins are perfect for cold molding (RTV) and High Temp Resin withstands the heat of vulcanizing natural rubber.

“Casting thicker pieces in resin has always presented unique challenges, whether it was lettering on a class ring, models with thick cross-sections, or generally dealing with the casting defects. Castable Wax 40 Resin performed amazingly similar to regular injection wax, the high wax content allowed sprues to stick more securely, and the surface finish is top notch. It actually feels like wax in your hands. Casting larger items from resin has never been easier.”
