Solid Solutions
TECHNICAL HELP
 
Getting started in moulding and casting, we advise that you work up progressively to avoid disappointment and wasted materials. Begin by gaining technical knowledge, here we can help via our website and technical data guidance sheets. This way you can get some familiarity with basic processes and material before you commence hands on.
Prior to taking on a major project and using lots of materials it may prove helpful to follow these steps:

  • Carefully read the product instructions even if you feel you are familiar with the type of material.
  • In some cases it may be wise to get used to the nature of a product by mixing and testing a small amount before mixing a large quantity.
  • In cases where a bulk amount of material is going to be needed for a project it may be wise to check with Solid Solutions that the material you have chosen is the most appropriate choice.
  • Finally some people have been known to run away in their confidence when approaching their initial moulding and casting project. Remember the old adage - 'You have to learn to crawl before you can walk' - and thats certainly before making a headlong run into something new.
Solid Solutions is committed to improving it's customers advancing with moulding and casting and we welcome you to join us in this exciting world of inovation and creativity.
