Silicone Rubber & Liquid Silicone for Moulds
When you're looking for a high-performance material that can be used for mould making, silicone rubber is hard to beat. That's because it comes with a wide range of unique benefits that have made the material extremely valuable in multiple industries.
Durable and transparent, liquid silicone for moulds also comes with fantastic electrical insulation properties. Our silicone rubbers are available in a range of hardness levels, from very soft to medium. Which means you can easily use them for your mould making.
Liquid silicone rubber is an extremely versatile material. Allowing you to pour, brush or spray the silicone rubber onto a model and create the details that no other mould rubber can do.
Our silicone products are non-reactive and robust, making them perfect for your unique creative projects.
DOZENS OF DURABLE SILICONE RUBBER ELASTOMERS
Elastomers are a rubber-like material which is made up of silicone that's been combined with another molecule. That other chemical could be oxygen, hydrogen, or carbon. And we have dozens of options to choose from.
Depending on the additional chemical, silicone rubber has a variety of uses. So it's important to have some awareness of its unique properties. Natural rubber lacks structural integrity compared to liquid silicone for moulds. Making silicone rubber:
- More resistant to heat
- Much more stable from a chemical perspective
- Better at electrical insulation
- More resistant to abrasion
- Suitable for outdoor use in all weathers (and is even ozone resistant)
We only offer the highest-quality solutions to make customised silicone moulds — adhesives for repairs, preparation solutions, specialised kits, and bulk solutions.

The Advantages of our Liquid Silicone Rubber
Due to the range of silicone rubber products that we’re known for, there are some additional advantages to buying silicone rubber than the ones already mentioned above.
Our range of products suits specific requirements based on different factors like:
Skin-safe: Our skin-safe elastomers are perfect for spreading across the eyes, mouth and body to create perfect body doubles. For those in the Film & TV industry, silicone rubber for making moulds is the ideal material that won't irritate your client’s skin. For those brands in the healthcare sector, it can be used for a wide range of applications, particularly for medical equipment that patients need to have on them at all times. When you're creating products that are going to be in regular contact with the customer's skin, then silicone rubber for making moulds or for using the product itself is hard to beat.
Working and demould times: Our fast-dry solutions set in as little as 90-seconds, while standard varieties are ready in 20 minutes or more. Choose the perfect working time to meet your needs. Our silicone moulding supplies combined with your choice of silicone will make lead time much faster. Which can only be a good thing when it comes to streamlining your production lines. Less waiting around, less downtime, and more rapid product delivery are incredibly popular advantages for business owners!
Viscosity: Need something to pour, brush, smooth onto body parts, or spray onto hard surfaces? We've got you covered. Liquid silicone rubber can be used how you need to use it. That viscosity is one of the reasons why it's such a popular material in the automotive sector. Silicone rubber has been designed to be particularly well-suited to moulding applications, and you can choose the flow that you need. You could opt for a stiffer silicone rubber for compression moulding or go for something softer and more viscous for transfer moulding. Whatever your goals, we have the silicone rubber and the silicone moulding supplies that you need.
Repairs and Prep: We offer everything you need to create moulds from start to finish and beyond. We have a wide range of silicone rubber for making moulds and moulding supplies. Check out our repair adhesives and surface preparation solutions.
Bulk and trial sizes: Try before you stock up. We offer the right size for every project. From small wearables to much larger projects and products, you choose the amount that you need. Trial it, and get a better idea of your needs.
Cast with almost any material: Need to build something with plaster, metals, wax, or resin? No problem. We have a silicone rubber to suit your project.
High temperature resistant: Its the only mould rubber suitable for casting low melt metal alloys such as tin, pewter, and lead.
Silicone rubbers have the best release properties of all rubber moulds. No release agent is required if you're doing production casting resins with polyurethanes, polyesters, and epoxy. That makes your life much easier as no post-production cleanup is needed. Silicone rubbers can be cured with a platinum catalyst (addition cure) or a tin catalyst (condensation cure).
