True to the original in every detail

From the reproduction of artwork and prototypes for the transport industry to foundry work, and from food to fashion and cosmetics, mold-makers and die-casters require materials that have the right mechanical properties and facilitate the manufacture of quality products efficiently and cost-effectively, while reducing waste.

We have been serving the market for over 60 years with silicones for precision mold making. Our Bluesil® RTV-2 range of silicones offers long mold durability, high flexibility, excellent mechanical properties and remarkable resistance to resins.

They are used for:

  • Architectural molding (resistance to concrete materials, outstanding fidelity, etc.)

  • General molding, with applications in jewelry making, art reproduction, special effects, furniture manufacturing, etc.

  • Pads and rollers used for printing applications.

Our experts are available to help you find the right mold-making solutions using our customized range of Bluesil® RTV-2 silicones.
