Developing Silicon Moulds For Casting Purposes

The casting mould built using silicon rubber will help MSMEs (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) to reduce the cost of products developed using casting moulds. The biggest leverage will be achieved by plastic products manufacturing and rubber products manufacturing industries. The combination of high thermal resistivity of silicon rubber with the strength and thermal conductivity will be used to build the casting mould. These casting moulds are divided into a silicon rubber mould and a metal casing covering its outer part. The silicon rubber mould will be used as the inner part to shape the casting material. The use of silicon rubber mould will reduce both the complexity of manufacturing the mould as well as reduce the cost of manufacturing. The outer metal casing will be used in strengthening and pressure handling of the silicon rubber mould. This outer casing will also help in evenly cooling the silicone mould. We intend to replace metal dyes in MSME’s by silicon dyes (silicon rubber mould) in the process of plastic and rubber casting.
