Grade 380 is the medium, all-purpose grade of Sylmasta Silicone Rubber. It is stiffer than Grade 370 for better dimensional stability
Grade 380 is the medium all-purpose grade of Sylmasta high tear strength moulding rubber for producing moulds used in the casting of polyurethane resins.
When set, Grade 380 is stiffer than Grade 370 which gives it better dimensional stability. It is softer than Grade 390 which means it is still suitable for deep undercuts.
Sylmasta Moulding Rubbers are produced to the highest standards for use in industry and model making to produce flexible, highly detailed rubber moulds of all sizes.
The high-quality of Sylmasta silicone rubbers means that once a mould has been taken from the master, it can be used again and again to pour multiple castings using Sylmasta PU Casting Resins.
Moulds made from Sylmasta Moulding Rubber have low shrinkage with no distortion and good dimensional stability. The long pot life means that there is plenty of time to pour the rubber and allow air bubbles to disperse.
Each pack of 380 Silicone Rubber contains catalyst and comes with a free reusable pipette, mixing cup and stirrer. You can order additional accessories from our Casting & Mould Making Accessories section.
If you wish to make moulds for use with Sylmasta CPU31 ClearCast Resin, then please use Grade 400.
Sylmasta casting resins have been trusted by professional kit builders and industrial users for years for their high detail and repeatability.
“Grade 380 Silicone Moulding Rubber has just the right degree of strength and flexibility for making small, highly detailed parts.” – Dr Alex Clark, author of Small Scale Modelling Masterclass
