Description

(Rebranded, previously known as RTV Silicone Catalyst)

This product requires a catalyst! Please see our ArtTV Silicone Catalyst (3%).


ArtTV Silicone is a high-strength RTV silicone moulding compound ideal for moulds for plaster and Jesmonite and most other modelmaking applications. Moulds made from ArtTV Silicone will give high-quality reproduction with virtually no shrinkage and with excellent release properties. ArtTVSilicone has been designed to be easy to mix by hand with a colour-coded catalyst to offer a visual aid to ensure the mixing is complete.

The two components mix easily and because of their low viscosity, RTV Silicone can be used without the use of a vacuum chamber. RTV Silicone also can be thickened with Silastic Thixo Additive to enable you to make skin moulds and to mould in-situ on site.
