Ecoflex® rubbers are platinum-catalyzed silicones that are versatile and easy to use. Ecoflex® rubbers are mixed 1A:1B by weight or volume and cured at room temperature with negligible shrinkage. Rubber also cures without a „tacky“ surface. Low viscosity ensures easy mixing and de-airing, or you can choose to mix and dispense using our convenient dispensing cartridges.
Cured rubber is very soft, very strong and very „stretchy“, stretching many times its original size without tearing and will rebound to its original form without distortion. Ecoflex® rubbers are water white translucent and can be color pigmented with Silc Pig® pigments for creating a variety of color effects. You can also add Smooth-On’s Silicone Thinner® to further lower the viscosity or add Smooth-On’s Thi-Vex® thickening agent for brush-on application.
Soft, Softer, Softest . . . Ecoflex® rubbers are based on Smooth-On’s Dragon Skin® technology and are currently available in four different hardness’: Shore A-5, Shore 00-10, 00-30 and 00-50. They are suitable for a variety of applications including making prosthetic appliances, cushioning for orthotics and special effects applications (especially in animatronics where repetitive motion is required).
Ecoflex® 5 has a pot life of 1 minute and a demold time of 5 minutes – Available only in dispensing cartridges.
