Molds that normally require many parts to release complicated or difficult patterns cannow be done easily and simply.
Castaldo SuperStretch™ was able to mold this hollow gold spiral sea shell charm without complicated multi-part inserts. The thin spiral core needed to reproduce the shell is strong and elastic enough to be withdrawn from wax patterns 100’s of times.
SuperStretch High Shine Finish means less polishing. Cuts like butter. Easy mold packing / easy mold cutting. Low rubber shrinkage - only 1.3%.
SuperStretch is compatible with other Castaldo silicone molding rubbers - can be used alone or used as an insert for special projects.
