Cast elastomers are a versatile class of materials known for their exceptional resilience and durability. They are produced through a meticulous process involving the careful blending and cross-linking of liquid polymeric precursors, followed by curing to solidify the desired shape. This method imparts unique properties to cast elastomers, such as high load-bearing capacity, resistance to abrasion, and excellent tear strength. Their versatility is further reflected in the range of applications they serve, spanning from industrial components to medical devices due to their biocompatibility. Cast elastomers offer a variety of advantages, including precise customization of hardness, outstanding chemical resistance, and the ability to simulate rubber-like properties. The two primary types of cast elastomers are hot cast and cold cast. Hot cast elastomers involve curing at elevated temperatures, resulting in improved physical properties. Cold cast elastomers, on the other hand, are cured at room temperature, making them suitable for delicate molds.
