Rigid Plastic to Create Sacrificial Tooling that Withstands Silicone Injection at High Temperature and Pressure, but Breaks away Easily
Figure 4® EGGSHELL-AMB 10 is process-optimized for the production of sacrificial tooling for casting silicone parts in any durometer. It is specifically engineered to withstand liquid silicone injection at high temperature and pressure, with intentional brittleness to shatter easily from silicone once the mold is filled and cooled. Its amber color allows for visualization of the injected silicone, and it also has high heat deflection temperature, high tensile modulus and low elongation at break which are preferred properties for molds to be injectable.
