5.25" Gator Combo Mold Inc/Inserts
Introducing a brand new line of custom crafted molds that are sure to change the hand casting industry. These are semi-permanent in nature. They won't warp or crack but will take lots of abuse, unlike traditional silicone molds. These tough molds are solid bodies, milled from blocks of HDPE (High Density Polyethylene). Demolding is easy! Just pull the suction plugs out, turn the mold upside down, rap the ends a few times on your work bench and watch the blanks fall out. These true beasts are designed to DEVOUR THE COMPETITION and other molds!
This model has overall dimensions of 6.50" x 4.50" x 1.50" with three casting chambers, each measuring 5.25" x .84375" x 1.0". The blanks can easily be end trimmed and squared up on a table saw, if so desired.
Includes a total of 12 inserts being six large stopper silicone inserts and six small stopper silicone inserts!
A release agent must be used due to the rigidity of the molds. Just spray the release agent into and on top of the chambers ensuring complete coverage and allow to dry before pouring your resin.
Apply a release agent to the rubber plugs to keep them free of any resin buildup caused by potential spillage.
A rubberized dead blow hammer will help with the de-mold process greatly. Lightly rap the bottom and sides of the mold once your blanks have fully cured, then turn the mold over and lightly rap the mold ends against your work bench top to see your blanks release. Based on personal experience, Alumilite and polyester resin blanks will release with very little effort at all. Epoxy blanks may require a few extra raps against your bench top before releasing.
