ELASTOSIL® M 4440
Pourable, condensation-curing, two-component silicone rubber that vulcanizes at room temperature.
Main application: Making cost effective molds.
- very good flowability and self-deaeration
- medium Shore A hardness (approx. 37)
- very good resistance to common casting resins
ELASTOSIL® M 4440 is a general-purpose mold-making material suitable for casting resins, wax, gyp-sum, etc.
ELASTOSIL® M 4440 is preferred when no or only minor undercuts are involved and a certain inherent stability of the mold is required.
ELASTOSIL® M 4440 is cured by adding Catalyst T 37 for long pot lives and curing times, and Catalyst T 40 for short pot lives and curing times.
The pot life is the period of time at 23 °C / 50 % rel. humidity during which the catalyzed mix to attain a viscosity of 100,000 mPa s and still be just pourable
