The 75-60 is a two-component (mould) rubber that cures at (RTV) Room Temperature. This 75-60 is a easy-to-use rubber with a mixing ratio 1A:1B and a low viscosity 1200 cP. De Poly 75 series offers superior strength with a variety of Shore A 60 – Shore A90. Due to the very accurate reproduction and strength properties, the Poly 75 series and especially the 75-60 is perfect for making molds for pouring concrete, plaster, or other industrial applications and products. The Poly 74- / 75- serie products requires release agent like Pol-Ease 2300 or liquid release agent like VL or 2350 for making moulds or to release the rubber from the object. Our Syn B-32 is perfect to release conrete castings from the 75-Series.
The Poly 75-60 and Poly 75-59 are both the softest variant of the Poly 75 series. For softer polyurethane types, we have the Poly 74 series with, among others, the Poly 74-20, Poly 74-30 and Poly 74-45 materials. For harder materials we have polyurethane rubbers from the PT Flex series or the Poly 75-75 and Poly 75-90.
In addition to the release agents, various additives are available for polyurethane rubbers. CAB-O-SIL is a thickening product for thickening the polyurethane cast rubber. This viscosity-increasing additive ensures that the rubber can be used for a spatula or brush mold. In addition to the thickener, we have various release agents, UV stabilizers, thinners and color pastes for coloring the rubber.

Release & Adhesion
Polyurethane casting rubber such as the poly 75-70 adheres when casting on many surfaces such as various types of metal, wood, polyurethane, plastics, epoxy materials, concrete, plaster and many more other surfaces. If release is required on these substrates, release agents such as our Pol-Ease 2300, Lossingsmiddel VL, Pol-Ease 2350 and Pol-Ease 2450 or the other release agents must be used. We always advise to first do a test with the adhesion, release or the suction effect of the rubber on the mold or application. With porous parts made of, for example, wood or plaster, the rubber can be sucked up. You can prevent this by first sealing it with, for example, a pore sealer. This is not a release agent, so if it still needs to be released or is poured with a material that will give you adhesion, use a release agent.
As standard, a polyurethane does bond and silicone does not bond to different materials. This adhesion or no adhesion is not for every material. If you want to generate extra adhesion for, for example, (mechanical) load, we always recommend optimizing this by using an ashesive primer for the different substrates. This gives a good bond for both materials. Before using this adhesive, the surface must be thoroughly cleaned and degreased. Blasting or roughening the surface promotes adhesion with or without a bonding primer.
Casting polyurethane on a material with which no adhesion is created therefore does not require a release agent. Most silicone casting rubbers such as our siliconen Eurosil, Platsil (addition silicone) and SG C-sil (condensation silicone) do not bond with the polyurethane materials. So no separate means is required here. However, it is possible that when you use molds intensively, the releasing effect can become less. Then use the release agent before you start pouring.
Always make a test case before you get started.
