New Silicone Rubber
A 1:1 mix ratio is one of the most desired qualities in liquid tooling products. An easy mixing and pouring procedure can save time and stress while working on a project. Two of our most popular and versatile silicone rubber products, V-340 and V-3040, are now available with a 1:1 mix ratio! 

Both new products are ideal for prototype mold making and offer excellent detail reproduction and release characteristics. V-345 also has improved resistance to cure inhibition (compared to V-340) while RTV-3044 has been formulated for improved urethane resin resistance (compared to V-3040).

                 Technical Q & A
We feature technical questions in every issue, but if you have questions of your own, our technical support staff is available during normal business hours. Just call (800) 321-8511 (option 5).

Q: Why is my Freeman 1010 High-Density Epoxy Paste (or Freeman 1020 Low-Density Epoxy Paste) sticky?
A: If the mixture has become sticky, then it was over mixed. A good rule of thumb is to stop mixing once the color becomes solid. This will mean the material is combined and ready for the next step.
Q: What is the freezing point of F-Bond Adhesive?
A: The freezing point of the F-Bond is -15°F. F-Bond can freeze without becoming ruined -- it will become stable and is ready to use once thawed. 
Q: What can I use to dry out solvents?
A: Traditionally, Absorb ALL is used to dry out solvents, but we have also found success with cat litter. Mix the material with either Absorb ALL or cat litter. Once it has dried, you can discard the waste. You can also use a fan to force the solvent to evaporate.
