SilFood is easy to use, even for beginners, and guarantees maximum quality and safety thanks to its food-grade certification according to European regulation (Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004). With high tensile strength and exceptional flexibility, you can easily create perfect molds.
Choose SilFood to create unique and personalized food molds instead of pre-packaged industrial molds. Amaze your customers with cutting-edge creations and buy our food-grade certified silicone now. Ideal for pastry chefs, chefs, bartenders, artisans, and creatives of all kinds.
SIL FOOD is a 1:1 addition curing duplicating silicone with low viscosity, making it ideal for producing extremely precise and detailed silicone molds. It has excellent mechanical properties due to its high tensile strength and flexibility, making it easy to demold the model, especially in the case of undercuts. This silicone does not require wetting agents and is odorless, thanks to the cross-linking added with a platinum catalyst in component A, polymerizing without shrinkage.
It can be easily and conveniently mixed with its 1:1 volume ratio and can be poured multiple times with almost all casting compounds. Additionally, it is resistant to temperatures up to 200°C.
SIL FOOD is particularly suitable for all molds in the industrial, artisanal, and hobby sectors.
This silicone is physiologically harmless (can be used on the skin) and is perfect for food use as it meets the requirements of the BfR and FDA.
Instructions for processing:
Place the clean model in a suitable mold or container. Mix the A and B components of SIL FOOD at room temperature in a 1:1 ratio for about 1 minute until a uniform and streak-free color is obtained. Then pour the silicone steadily in the same spot, with a thin flow, until the entire model is covered. See the table for working times. The release agent (Sil Food TMV) is necessary when pouring silicone onto silicone or for particular materials. At a room temperature of 23°C, the model can be demolded after the curing time (see table). The curing time can be reduced by adding heat (e.g. to 50°C). Do not pour the silicone mold before another 20 minutes have passed, in order to restore deformations that occurred during demolding.
Note: if the material or room temperature is above 23°C, the working time is significantly reduced.
Attention: some model materials contain “platinum inhibitors.” They prevent the silicone from hardening on the contact surface with the model. Recommendation: clean the model thoroughly and test with a small amount of material before pouring; if necessary, isolate the model with Sil Food TMV.
SIL FOOD for food use: When used with food, the silicone mold must be degassed or baked. Put the mold in an oven at 200°C for about 4 hours.
