Self setting rubber is Play-Doh for adults. But before you get the impression that such a versatile substance is merely a toy, let me explain some of the powerful uses for this unique product that are only limited by the imagination.
Self Setting Rubber Has Many Useful Purposes
Here are some things about self setting rubber that you may not have known:
- It is a self-setting rubber that you form by hand and allow to cure overnight at room temperature.
- Its self-adhesive quality bonds to aluminum, steel, ceramics, glass, wood, and some fabrics.
- It is easily removable from most non-porous surfaces
- It is waterproof, UV resistant, electrically insulating, and dishwasher-proof when cured
- It is bendable to any color and is temperature-resistant from -50 to +180 degree Celsius
- You can store self setting rubber in the fridge to double its shelf life
