Brand New RAMPF Silicones – High Strength, Low Viscosity, Minimum Shrinkage
RAMPF is launching its brand new silicone product line at AMUG Conference 2022 in Chicago, IL, from April 3 to 7. The advantages of the silicone systems – high strength, low viscosity, minimum shrinkage – will be presented live at a Silicone Molding & Urethane Casting Workshop.
RAMPF silicones are perfect for mold making, rapid prototyping, theming and amusement parks, and hobby/art projects. The resin systems are easy to mix (10:1) and processed via hand batch at room temperature. Shore hardness ranges from 25 to 60A.
Silicone Molding & Urethane Casting Workshop
On day 1 of the workshop, Wednesday, April 6, from 1:30 to 2:30pm, RAMPF experts will demonstrate how to pour silicone to make a mold. On day 2, Thursday, April 7, from 10:30am to 12:00pm, the master will be removed from the mold and a fast castable urethane added.
A general discussion will take place and the advantages of silicone mold making for additive manufacturing will be explained. The RAMPF workshop is both hands on and educational; all supplies are provided. There will also be a Q&A session afterwards.
