A process-optimized material for the production of sacrificial tooling for casting silicone and other materials. Rigid Plastic to Create Sacrificial Tooling that Withstands Silicone Injection at High Temperature and Pressure, but Breaks away Easily.
ABOUT EGGSHELL-AMB 10
EGGSHELL-AMB 10 is process-optimized for the production of sacrificial tooling for casting silicone parts in any durometer. It is specifically engineered to withstand liquid silicone injection at high temperature and pressure, with intentional brittleness to shatter easily from silicone once the mold is filled and cooled. Its amber color allows for visualization of the injected silicone, and it also has high heat deflection temperature, high tensile modulus and low elongation at break which are preferred properties for molds to be injectable.
MOST PLACE TO USE
⦿ For casting silicone parts in any durometer
⦿ Customized end-use and low volume production parts of silicone material
⦿ High quality prototypes quickly produced
⦿ Fine feature detail and digital textures applied to the sacrificial tooling for textured silicone parts
⦿ Digital tooling for complex geometries
⦿ End product can be cast with many silicones
HOW WE MAKE IT
All EGGSHELL-AMB 10 models are 3D printed using a complex four-step process. First, the model is printed in wax using a specialized 10-30 micron high-resolution SLA 3D printer. Then put in a container where alcohol liquid to get rid of residue poured in around it. When the plaster sets, need to be cure for 10-60 minute. Last step is removing the supports.
