Latex rubber is cost effective and has extreme tear strength, elongation break and durability. Rubber moulding with latex is a one part system applied by brush and is air dried at room temperature. Latex rubber is a natural product extracted from the hevea brasiliensis tree. After processing, it offers high elongation and tear strength properties that can be used for a wide range of industrial & commercial applications, including stone veneer manufacturing, statuary reproduction, mask making, special effects, and much more. molding and casting materials are available at tapplastics. This video segment will show you how to make a simple mold using tap premium liquid latex rubber. Perfect combination resulting in latex rubber molds latex and rubber are two of the major components used for manufacturing molds. Natural liquid latex is suitable for making rubber molds by brushing, or spraying. Our special method of compounding, and its high solids content, permit reproduction of the finest detail. Its major uses are for creating flexible, durable molds for pouring concrete and plaster for lawn and garden ornaments, statues, fountains, and the restoration of buildings. It is one of the simpler materials with which to make a flexible mould. Its ability to reproduce detailed surfaces is very good and the shrinkage is low. You apply latex by brushing one coat on at a time over the model,allowing each coat to dry before applying another.
