HRD 78


  • Non-Mercury Based Catalyst System
  • High impact rigid material
  • Odorless, clean white color
  • One to two hour demold time
  • Excellent for vacuum or pressure casting
  • Low viscosity
  • Exhibits exceptional high heat distortion temperature


HRD 78 produces a high impact, rigid 78 Shore D material that is commonly used to make computer housings, models of all kinds,
artwork, and can also be used for electronic component encapsulation. HRD 78 is an excellent hand-castable product that produces
parts with heat deflection temperatures up to 2200F(1040C).
