Mold Star Pourable Silicone
Easy to Use Silicone Mold Rubber
Mold Star™ silicones cure to soft, strong rubbers which are tear resistant and exhibit very low long term shrinkage. Molds made with Mold Star™ will last a long time in your mold library and are good for casting wax, gypsum, resins, concrete and other materials. Cured Mold Star™ rubber is heat resistant up to 450°F (232°C) and is suitable for casting low-temperature melt metal alloys.
NOTE: This product will not work with modeling clays containing sulfur under any circumstances.
One to One Mix Ratio
Mold Star™ rubbers are mixed 1A:1B by volume (no weighing scale necessary) for precise measurements even at a very low mass and cure at room temperature with negligible shrinkage.
No Vacuum Degassing
Mold Star™ silicones feature relatively low viscosities making vacuum degassing optional and is not required for most applications. A uniform flow will help minimize entrapped air.
Make Fast Cut Molds or Castings
Mold Star™ 19T, 20T, and 31T are translucent silicones for making fast molds or casting into alginate molds. They offer fast cure times, multiple hardnesses, and an infinite number of color effects achieved by adding Silc Pig™ silicone pigments or Cast Magic™ effects powders.

Mold Star Pourable Silicone
Made a beautifull mould. Simple to make, no problems
I wasted so much time, money and product trying to use it without vacuum degasing. The product website claims degasing isn't necessary however my experience is that it is. I even called the fiberglass shop and they offered no opinion besides follow the smooth-on website instructions. A better quality of service would have been able to offer an opinion which should be basic industry standards so as to not waste so much of my time, money and product
Sorry to hear that you had issues with Mold Star, we haven't had any feedback similar to yours, so I'm surprised you're having bubble issues.
As we are just a distributor of the product, not a workshop, we don't have huge amounts of experience with it, the small samples we have done have worked fine, but since every application is different, more complex pours might be an issue.
As we don't have huge experience with all of the different products available, you will get more valuable information from the manufacturer of the product. We've found that Smooth-On's support has been fantastic in the past, and they can provide information and expertise that we simply do not have.
Because every application is different, it is difficult for us to give direct opinions as this will then become our liability if your application isn't the same as everyone else's experience.
Due diligence is the key to these products, there is plenty of information available on the manufacturers website, YouTube videos of people using this product and more with no issues, datasheets and more. They are using the exact same product.
I'm sorry this product doesn't live up to your expectations, I hope you're able to find a product that may be more suitable to what you are doing, and I wish you luck with your future projects.
