Why the mold silicone curing so slow?


Must have a lot of friends have this problem, when we are making silicone mold, mold the silicone 24 hours due to some reason will not curing phenomenon, today we will analyze how to control the silica gel and the proportion of curing agent to avoid not curing phenomenon.


Mold silicone curing will be affected by temperature, high temperature fast curing speed, on the contrary, low temperature curing speed will slow down, so when entering the winter weather will be appropriate when the production of silicone mold surface instead of silicone and curing agent ratio to guarantee the normal curing of silica gel.


The greater the amount of curing agent added silica gel reaction speed faster, the proportion of curing agent and silica gel at least not less than 1%. If the amount of curing agent added too little for a long time won't cure. Curing agent added less than 5% generally on silica gel hardness, tensile and tear strength will not have much impact.


1) amount of curing agent added 1%, 2.5 hours colloid is in flow, can release 6 to 8 hours.


(2) the amount of curing agent added 2%, 50 minutes to 1 hour and fluidity, Hugh will also can release 2 to 3 hours.


(3) amount of curing agent added 3%, 28 to 30 minutes colloid in flow, also can release 1.5-2 hours.


(4) amount of curing agent added 4%, 10-15 minutes colloid in flow, 1-1.5 hours can release.


Silica gel after curing agent added to mold the silicone must stir well, if there is no uniform mixing, part not fixed-line phenomenon occurs, if there is no fixed place 48 hours later can't fixed, the mould was discarded, won't cure, can only change it to make the mold after clean.
