Plat-Cat® Platinum Silicone Cure Accelerator is an additive designed to “accelerate” the cure time of Smooth-On platinum silicone rubber products without significantly affecting the ultimate physical properties. This allows for much faster removal (demold) of a part or rubber mold from the original model. The accelerator is added by weight to Part A and should be thoroughly mixed into Part A before adding Part B.
Note: Adding the accelerator drastically reduces the pot life (time you have to mix and pour material) of the liquid rubber product.
Please note: We do our best to ensure that this material estimator is accurate. However, Reynolds Advanced Materials offers no warranty either expressed or implied regarding the accuracy/reliability of this information. Reynolds Advanced Materials assumes no liability for loss or damage associated with use of material estimators. If this is a critical project, we encourage you to verify estimator results using the long-hand method of correlating the volumetric yield of the material with mold cavity.
