3 Benefits of using RTV Silicone Rubbers for creative DIY projects

RTV Silicone Rubbers RTV Silicone rubbers are pourable and spreadable compounds which form flexible rubbers. These rubbers always consist of two components which are then vulcanised at room temperature. They have a wide range of capabilities due to their excellent properties, which include easy use, heat resistance, and little to no shrinkage. These are just three of the several benefits of using RTV silicone rubbers for your creative DIY projects:


The More Details the Better

Due to the viscosity of RTV silicone rubber, the moulds created from the compound can produce complex shape and fine details. This means that you can utilize your skills and tools and create highly detailed projects that can truly capture the essence of your talents.


Less Wait Time with RTV Silicone Rubbers

Many different products that you use for casting and making moulds often take long periods of time to set, resulting in a loss of time working on your craft. Since there is no precision mixing or degassing, there’s even less time spent working the product before you begin your project. As silicone utilizes humidity in the air as it cures, you can even increase the rate at which it cures, saving you time.


Less Money, More Resources

As silicone RTV rubber is one the most cost effective materials you can use as a hobbyist, it allows for users of all financial capacities to use the product. In addition to saving money on your rubber, you’ll also be able to put that money to more specialised tools or paints that will greatly affect your project.
