Let’s go back to Silicone Replicas to answer some of the frequently asked questions that the customer often puts us on. What RAL code can I get with this technology?

First of all, the Silicone Replicas are the best technology to make a number of prototypes or numerically limited pieces of plastic material.

The production is done by casting in vacuum machines and the daily quantity varies according to the material to be printed according to the installation times provided by the safety data sheet. The equipment has a production capacity of about 25 castings to produce prototypes of silicone molded polyurethane material with different degrees of hardness and color, suitable also for co-molding with metal inserts and other plastic parts.

Polyurethane materials from basic silicone mold replicas are: transparent (shiny, opaque or even opal), white or black.

The basic polyurethane materials to obtain RAL codes approaching the desired can be manually pigmented with all primary colors and, in turn, can be combined to obtain secondary colors. Here are some examples of accomplishments from our technical department.

In order to obtain the specific color according to RAL code, however, the best process is definitely painting after completing the workpiece.

In addition to rigid plastic materials, there are gummy materials which, unlike the rigid, are not paintable, but in order to obtain different colors, they can only be pigmented.

It is a technology suitable for all industrial sectors for the most varied needs: silicone mold replicas can be used to produce prototypes to be tested as the proposed materials have very close properties to the definitive ones and at the same time this advantage can be Spent on obtaining a first production of usable components as final pieces even if the products need FAR 25 or medical certifications.
