    Merged: Where do I find Silicon RTV Rubber?

    I have found some, but not a lot. I found a site on line that sells it for $26 a pound. That's w/o shipping and I think it's a quart, but they don't say, it's just a pound. I've exhausted the phone book here, and am about to start harrasing a local molding company if I can't find another source. Anyone have a lead where I could find a gal. or 1/2 gal. of the stuff?

    Here is the link for Tap plastics. They have everything you need for molding, and at resonable prices.

    Here's another link.

    Best Online Source For Molding\Casting Supplies?

    Anyone know of a good online source for Molding and casting materials? I'm looking for something easy to work with but super hard for molds. Any Ideas?? Hydra-cal maybe?

    Thanks

    Try www.polytek.com

    They have the silicones etc. I buy my hydrocal locally thru a cement retailer. I would suggest trying that.

    Its much cheaper. I wouldnt suggest shipping this stuff due to the wt.

    Thx for the fast reply's. I'll try calling a cement retailer. Does a place like Home Depot carry Hydra-cal? Is this the best stuff for molds? I tried plaster O' Paris just dinkin around and its mich too soft. Details come off with the object when you release it, even with an agent.
