ClearSil™ (Firm) transparent silicone rubber is a high quality platinum (addition-cure) silicone rubber ideal for creating moulds that require high clarity, firmness and stability.
Moulds made with transparent silicone rubber are great for resin castings that require accurate colouring or if you require clarity when embedding objects in your casts.
For best results, we recommend degassing the silicone rubber (usually in a vacuum chamber) to ensure higher clarity. It may also be possible to remove bubbles with a pressure pot.
Without degassing, there will be bubbles which may reduce some visibility, but that generally does not affect the surface of the mould cavities.
It is non-toxic, food-grade, skin-safe and safe to use indoors. Cures at room temperature.

Note: The silicone rubber may not cure if there are contaminants on the surface of the master. As IceSil™ is a platinum (addition-cure) silicone rubber, contact with some materials such as sulphur-based clay, tin-cured silicone rubber, latex rubber, paint products and certain 3D-printed plastic, may also inhibit its curing process. Uncured rubber can be difficult to remove from your masters and may stain them. Hence, we recommend performing a small test on your master before making your actual mould.
The silicone rubber has a shelf life of 1 year when stored under dry and cool conditions in sealed packaging.
Although the silicone rubber is non-toxic, it is still a chemical and you are advised to follow product usage instructions and wear personal protective equipment. For more information on safety, please refer to the SDS available at resinplay.sg.
The technical specifications and information is given in good faith and based on our test results obtained but without warranty. The information may differ when the silicone rubber is used in different environments, if pigments are added, or due to the material of the master or any external-related factors. The application, use and processing of the products are beyond our control and Resin Play in respect of any sale of its products shall be determined by the terms of its conditions of sale.
