Ultra Fast Catalyst for RTV1000 Silicone Rubber



Description

UFC has been formulated to dramatically accelerate the speed at which tin-cured RTV

rubbers will cure.  Standard working times for these RTV’s range between one and

three hours with demold times between 16 and 24 hrs.  The UFC can give working time

of ten minutes and a demold time of 45 min.

 

Directions

UFC is to be used in place of the standard RTV activator - Do not use both. 

The rate of cure can be changed by altering the percentage of UFC used. See the table below.
