A superior quality medium hardness jewelry molding rubber with extreme tear and tensile strength for every application including spirals, cores, cut-outs & plugs as well as for general purpose use. Can be used with Econosil® on the outside for additional stiffness or on the inside for additional dimension stability.

Shore A hardness: 38 - 40.
Tensile strength: 8.3 n/mm² / 1204 psi
Vulcanizes at 165°-176° C / 330° - 350° F.
Tear strength: 21.2 n/mm / 121 lbs./ in.
Medium shrinkage - 2.3%.

Castaldo Econosil® (Item #808)
Harder, economy grade jewelry molding rubber that still produces top quality molds with long use life. Suitable for every application including spirals, cores, cut outs & plugs as well as general purpose. Econosil offers less flexibly for better dimensional stability – less ballooning during injection, less constriction during clamping & less internal distortion of small, delicate details. Excellent for flat and simple pieces, filigree or other thin channels. Also excellent for pieces where high precision and consistent weight is required. Can be combined with Super High Strengthtm rubber as an insert to add stiffness and hardness in pattern area.
