Animatronics & Special Effects

Animatronics & Silicone Props 

Product Advantages:
→ Easy to use
→ Translucent
→ Durable
→ Realistic
→ Flexible
→ Easily pigmented
→ Variety of hardness
→ UV & temperature resistant
→ Outstanding physical properties

Choosing the best suited product:
Addition Cure — since the linear shrink is nil, this chemistry is best for applications requiring exact duplication or very tight dimensional tolerances. It is also best for quick curing requirements by using fast room temperature curing catalysts or by accelerating with heat. This chemistry is available in translucent or opaque formulations and is readily pigmented or painted. Silbione® addition cure chemistry is recommended for skin contact applications.

→ Condensation Cure — does not have the catalyst inhibition problems associated with addition chemistry making these products useful for uncontrolled work environments or when certain contaminants (sulfur, amines, and others) are known to be present. Some shrink during cure will occur. This chemistry is available in translucent or opaque formulations and is readily pigmented or painted. Not recommended for skin contact applications due to the presence of organo-tin catalysts.
