For some people who have not touched the mold may not be very clear for the mold, today to explain to everyone what is a silicone mold.
Silicone mold is a special mold for making handicrafts. It can make all kinds of silicone products such as: silicone kitchenware, silicone gifts, silicone buttons, silicone toys, silicone pads and other professional molds used to make handicrafts, plastic raw materials can be divided according to performance points Ordinary silica gel and meteorological silica gel, the characteristics of silica gel are high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, strong tear resistance, and high simulation precision. It is a mold for various technological products.
It is clearer to say that by making silicone molds, it is then used to mass-produce a product.
Silicone mold material:
Silicone is becoming more and more popular because of its good environmental performance. To understand the knowledge of silicone molds, silicone raw materials must be started.
1, ordinary silica gel, also known as precipitated silica gel
Color: translucent, milky white, light yellow, gray and so on.
Hardness: 30 °, 40 °, 50 °, 60 °, 70 °, etc., commonly used in 40 ° -70 °.
Uses: The use of more mobile phone keys, miscellaneous items, conductive adhesive and other low-grade silicone products.
Meteorological glue, also known as pure silica gel
Hardness: 30°, 40°, 50°, 60°, 70°, 80°, etc., commonly used between 40°-60°.
Elongation: 600% - 700%
Features: Due to the good transparency and tensile strength of this material. High cost
Uses: Silicone tubes, protective covers and other high-end products that require high flexibility.
2. Silicone raw materials can be divided into solid silica gel and liquid silica gel according to their physical properties.
Solid silica gel is mainly used for molded products. For example: silicone sleeves, silicone utensils, silicone molds, silicone buttons, etc., liquid silicone is mainly used for extrusion molding products, such as silicone nipples, silicone tubes and so on.
Insulated silicone mat, excellent high temperature resistance, silicone (food grade silicone) can withstand 200 °C high temperature and long-term use, the product production of raw materials meet food grade standards, through the FDA food-grade testing, tasteless and non-toxic, manufacturers die Production, color, shape can be customized.
