GI-1000 is an extrememly high tear strength, tin-catalyzed RTV-2 silicone rubber, which was designed for casting polyester parts. GI-1000 is not sensitive to inhibition, meaning it will cure at room temperature over virtually any surface. It is easy to mix and de-air, and will cure with only a slight degree of shrinkage. The speed at which the rubber hardens can be accelerated with special activators.
Condensation cure two-component silicone rubbers are excellent for most general mold making and prototype applications. They are excellent for casting waxes, gypsum, epoxies and other plastics. GI-1000 is extremely useful for those applications where superior mechanical properties are required.
