The Smooth-Cast® Semi-Rigid line of low-cost semi-rigid urethane casting resins cure quickly to semi-rigid plastics that offer excellent impact resistance. These plastics are easy-to-use (mix ratio is 1A:1B by volume) and have low viscosities for minimal bubble entrapment. Vibrant colors are possible by adding SO-Strong® color tints or Ignite® color pigments.
These semi-rigid plastics will really take a beating and offer exceptional abrasion resistance. They are good for making high-impact resistance tools, prototypes, abrasion resistant parts, foundry patterns, roller facings, vibration pads, fast concrete stamping pads, etc.
Smooth-Cast® 57D is a semi-rigid urethane plastic that offers a gradual cure profile (does not snap cure), making it suitable for machine or hand rotational casting.
Use For Rotational Casting - Once poured into a suitable rubber mold configuration, the mold can be rotated so that the resin mixture gradually coats the inside of the mold cavity. After an adequate wall thickness is attained inside the mold, the result is a cured hollow casting that is semi-rigid and highly impact resistant.
Use as a Casting Resin – Smooth-Cast® 57D can also be used as a casting resin for making solid, semi-rigid castings that are tough and durable.
