Re: Silocone/Fiberglass Molds, a question:


the cure inhibition was due to one of three things more then likely

copper

latex

sulfer

these are the biggest pains in the butt when it comes to molding and curing.

And what’s ten years? Well, it’s roughly how long it takes to put in ten thousand hours of hard practice. Ten thousand hours is the magic number of greatness.

You forgot cold/moisture/humidity....rebound loves dry heat. I have had a couple issues with rebound and krylon paint, but there was always a moisture problem in the air as well.

Re: Silocone/Fiberglass Molds, a question:


@Richard= can you really do that?

I have made a coupe molds with the thickened sil- the first one i made, i tried to make a resin jacket-- but because the thickend sil was so rough- it was impossible to use the jacket. I tried running unthickened sil over it, but it all ran off.. brushing soapy water to smooth it.. I love it.

Ill be making a couple new molds in a few weeks, and this is EXACTLY what i needed..

Please confirm

Oh- and i use smooth-on MM 30 pretty exclusively..

Re: Silocone/Fiberglass Molds, a question:


So when it comes to the jacket, I was looking at Smooth-on's plasti-paste 2. I've also found Bondo fiberglass matts and resin at my Home Depot. Would using the fiberglass sheets/matting with the bondo resin work well for the jacket material? Or is Smooth-on's plasti-paste a better route? I'm not sure if the bondo will conform to the silicone as well as the plasti-paste.

Plasti-paste would be your better bet.

Agreed. Stuff is rock hard, thin, hard jacket = less weight.
