Hi Guys :)

Would anyone be kind enough to give some general advice on making some Rubber compression tools .

Have made a few complete Plastic Injection moulds now but have never come across these before . They seem fairly straight forward if I could find some basic info on them like shrinkage , heating , finishes, process etc

Any pointers would be a great help.

Thanks

Cheers Kev :cheers:

Alumilite.com or smoothon.com has training videos and all the supplies you can think of. Awesome stuff that silicone is. Both for parts and mold making. Good luck

Hi Warren :)


Thanks for links , had a quick look at them and were very interesting but i need some info on more production compression orientated tooling i.e. steel moulds with pillars and bushes etc.


Thanks again

Hi Kev,

I was thinking you wanted molds made from silicon. But it seems you want to make silicon parts. I have the opposite solution. You see, I make my molds from silicon for carbon fiber and other cast material parts.

Unfortunately I have no experience making parts from silicon aside from casting two part mixtures with aluminum masters.

Good luck.
