OTHER CASTING MATERIALS
Polyurethane has become a go to material for production casting. Unlike acrylic, urethane has a much shorter cure time allowing for more production pieces per mold. Due to the shorter process time it is an optimal choice when turnaround is of the essence. Urethanes can be translucent, opaque or color matched for your special project. They are durable, hold up to their intended purpose and look great when cast.
Other materials used in the casting process can be plaster and polyester. We recommend these materials for painted projects and those not exposed to the elements. Polyester and plaster are utilized when producing lower cost decorative products and when making quick master models from waste molds. Our team will offer guidance when it comes to selecting the best material for your project.
