RTV Urethane Casting

A cost-effective alternative to injection molding

Looking to create aesthetically pleasing, functional end-use parts in color and texture with repeatable quality output?

This manufacturing process is similar to injection molding, but boasts significantly lower tooling costs.

While injection molding is great for high volume production, urethane casting is ideal for prototyping, bridge production, and production ranging from 10-1,000 units.

How Urethane Casting Works

A master pattern that is either CNC machined or 3D printed with SLA from a CAD file is placed in a mold frame. Liquid silicone is then poured around it to form a mold.

Once mold curing is complete, it is split in half and the pattern is removed – leaving a cavity in the shape of the end part. Resin is then poured into the mold. Once cured, the final part is removed.

This process can be repeated up to 20 times on the same mold before it is considered fully deteriorated, after which a new mold is cast from the master pattern.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the design guidelines?

Wall Thickness

Keep wall thicknesses manageable: 1mm minimum to allow for mold filling.

Releasable Mold

Ensure the mold can be released. No geometries that capture the mold, like narrow mouthed vessels. Many undercuts can be successfully molded.

What color options are available with cast urethane?

For color options, we offer tinting (mixing pigment in with the resin), painting and polishing.

How many parts can be produced from one mold?

Molds yield up to 20 parts per tool (dependent on geometry and material used).

What is the maximum part size that can be cast?
One of the great benefits with cast urethane is that it works well for large parts. If the size of your part is a concern, contact us and we will review your project with you.
