Natron Silicone Thinners
Silicone Thinner are silicone fluids use to lower viscosity of mixed platinum based silicone rubber products. Printwiki defines thinner as A solvent, diluent, oil, or other substance added to a printing ink to reduce its tack, body, and viscosity.
Silicone thinner Advantages:
Lower viscosity makes it easy for air bubbles to escape. It is easy to de-gas mixtures. Less bubbles means easy printing or mold making.
Mixed silicone ink or casting silicone will flow better.
We have several thinners for different functions. We have silicone oil which is a non-reactive thinner for lowering the hardness of cured silicone. We also have reactive solvents which do not affect the durometer f the cured silicone rubber.
Lastly, thinners increase the pot-life. The more the solvent the longer the work time with the mixed silicone substrate.
Non-reactive thinners affect the tear and tensile strength in proportion to the amount of silicone thinner added to some silicone rubber products.
