Banana-Skin is a two-component silicone elastomer that cures at room temperature by a Poly-addition reaction that may be accelerated by heating. Banana-Skin is designed as a 13 Shore A high tear strength rubber providing good physical properties for glove and skin moulding applications.
Banana-Skin is great for moulds with large undercuts. Banana-Skin has high elongation and a coloured catalyst for easy mixing. Moulded parts can be produced without seams. Banana-Skin offers a low mixed viscosity and is available from Adelaide Moulding and Casting.
Typical product uses: Skin moulds glove moulding moulds requiring a soft silicone moulding parts with large undercuts
