Developing Silicon Molds 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 the plastic and rubber product manufacturing industries. The combination of high thermal resistivity of silicon rubber with its 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. Using a silicon rubber mould will simplify the manufacturing process and cut down on production costs. The outer metal casing will be used for 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 MSMEs by silicon dyes (silicon rubber mould) in the process of plastic and rubber casting.
