I just wish to state...
There are various companies around the world that make plastic resins. I use Smooth On products for various reasons The main ones are:
1...Their basic products are pretty much idiot proof.
2...They're a 5 minute drive away.
3...The end result is safe to play with.
4...They are environmentally safe.
5...They give me the results I expect and look for.
6...Educational information available for all products.
Of course more exotic resins might require more stringent safety precautions as with anything.
Sometimes things go pear shaped and it ''all becomes crap'' due to the frustration of both lost time and productivity.
Im not slagging Smooth On Silicone Rubber. It has advertised qualities that would be quite helpful for certain molds. If I could get the product to work. The frustration lies in not being able to figure out why this product is failing me. Im sure under the right circumstances Smooth Ons Silicone Rubber works very well.
Least I can figure...its either A) a reaction with the 205 release agent B) The mold cure time is out by at least 12-24 hours depending on the size of the mold or C) Its just a bad lot. Nothing else makes sense. Who knows. Maybe Im overlooking something very simple that I either did or didn't do. My ego can take it.
But because my results with this product have been mostly negative, Im not going to use the silicone rubber at this time for my projects. I will buy this product again with the sole purpose of trying to figure out why I couldn't get the results I should have gotten. I just don't have the time or patience to figure it out by doing product testing at just this particular time.
But believe me...when I do...I will be posting it.
