Proper coaster mould, with a deep pouring area and thick side walls. The mould is 100 by 100 and 20mm deep. The mould could also be used as a paperweight mould.
The quality silicone mould by Steer_Cre8 is ideal for any serious woodworker, artist, or crafter that creates with wood, epoxy, concrete, plaster, soap, wax, urethane plastic, rubber, polyester casting resin, and some low-melt metals.
Importing quality moulds to South Africa is expensive due to their weight and other factors. A Steer_Cre8 silicone mould is manufactured locally with great care to ensure a symmetric form, smoothness, and clarity, which is especially important when working with epoxy resin. The silicone moulds are made from the blanks are sanded to 4000 grit for a smooth surface. Besides cheap Chinese imports, our moulds are cast with thick and rigid side walls for form, not needing any support.
The moulds are leakproof, flexible yet durable, and never need assembly or sealing. Superior to HDPE and wood, our silicone moulds save time and money. They are effortless to set up or de-mould. There is no need to clamp down wood; the final product easily pops out and has little wastage.
The silicone moulds are heat resistant to around 200 degrees Celsius but should not be exposed to direct contact with a flame. Instead, briskly wave your heat source to pop bubbles.
Our moulds are reusable; you can get between 20 and 30 uses out of a mould with care. So when amortising the cost of your mould over 30 uses, you will already see a significant saving compared to wood, sealant, and screws. Even more so when you factor your time and frustration into the equation.
Properly caring for your mould involves using a non-silicone-based mould release spray and mixing your epoxy to avoid bonding and mould tare. Don’t use cooking spray, wax, vaseline, silicone-based sprays, or sprays designed for urethane or polyester products.
As mentioned, all Steer_cre8 moulds are handcrafted and, therefore, will have some imperfections on the outside caused by the casting and de-molding process. These imperfections, however, have no impact on the mould’s or your project’s quality.
Steer_Cre8 also does custom-sized silicon moulds and will gladly assist you with any project.
