How to combine performance and simplicity for vacuum casting?

Allier performance et simplicité pour la coulée sous vide grâce à la PR7 Séries de Synthene

Synthene offers a simple and practical range to meet all your needs for the realization of rigid parts in vacuum casting. You can find all you need to know in this article: Synthene - Vacuum casting

Based on the technology already proven for the PR700, the PR7 Series offers the great advantage of a single isocyanate for 4 systems with different properties.

With a single isocyanate: Synthene PR7-XX, and a shelf life of 18 months, the PR7 series allows for optimal stock management with adapted packaging: 1kg and 5kg for the different products.

Mixing ratio:

Synthene PR700: vacuum casting resin par excellence. Simulating an ABS, black, with a flexural modulus of 2300Mpa, this resin also offers a very good temperature resistance: 130°C.

Synthene PR777 : Semi-rigid resin similar to HDPE or PP. (1000 Mpa flexural modulus) With an intermediate stiffness, it has a very good impact resistance and a mixing ratio PR777Polyol + PR7XX Iso of 1/1.

Synthene PR740 : Semi-flexible, alternative to the old PR891. Very easy to use, it has a good colorability. With a simple mixing ratio (100/120) it allows to realize parts with a great flexibility, up to the hinge effect.

Synthene PR750 : THE reference high temperature resin (HDT of 150°C) that can be colored. It flows very easily (viscosity of about 1000mPas.s) while remaining slightly flexible (2200Mpa modulus of lesion)

The low aggressiveness of these resins makes them ideal for vacuum casting, allowing the production of 30 to 40 parts in a polyaddition silicone mold (RTV 4234-T4).

The very short demolding time allows to increase the production rate of the parts: demolding between 45 and 60min at 70°C.

Health and safety: All Synthene PR7 series products (Synthene PR740, Synthene PR777, Synthene PR700, Synthene PR752) are mercury free, non CMR, and meet the requirements of European Directives: 2011/65/EU (RoHS), 2002/96/EC, 2000/53/EC, 2000/11/EC.

These different products are compatible with the SYNFILL-G Charge. Questions about the Synthene SYNFILL-G ? Find our dedicated article : Synfill-G from Synthene, the new glass fibre filler for reinforcement

Example of compatibility: Synthene PR700 + Synthene SYNFILL-G

Synthene PR-700 : Black resin intended for the production of prototypes or small series. Any need for the production of parts requiring high thermal resistance and/or high mechanical properties.
