Most wax figures are made of silicone rubber, and only a small number of wax figures are made of wax and other materials. For example, professional silicone wax figures manufacturing, such as Grand Orient Wax Art Co., Ltd., also focuses on using silicone, and they even use platinum silicone. Platinum silicone is recommended as a mold material for casting polyurethane, epoxy, or polyester resins, wax, and other casting materials.
Silicone Rubber has the characteristics of easy storage and easy maintenance. Why do they use silicone to create wax figures? How is its ageing resistance?
Compared with other plastic materials, the ageing resistance of silicone rubber products is very prominent. Silicone is an odorless, colorless polymer composed mainly of silicon, found naturally in sand, quartz and rocks. It is flexible, resistant and withstands high temperatures.
Platinum silicone is a type of silicone that uses only platinum (precious metal) as a catalyzer, which increases its quality, apart from silicone’s other properties.
It is the ideal material for manufacturing molds or products that will come into contact with food. The safety and quality of each one of its components also make platinum silicone the ideal material for silicone wax figures. The platinum silicone has a wide operating temperature range, oxidation resistance, weather resistance, shock resistance, moisture resistance, and good electrical insulation properties. It also has excellent low-temperature resistance, ablation resistance, and radiation resistance. It also has an exceptional Cold resistance. Products manufactured with platinum silicone withstand high temperatures: -60ºC and 220ºC. Its versatility and high-temperature resistance make it excellent in ageing resistance.
1. simulation wax mold silicone ultra-thin and realistic
made of high-quality silicone material, which has good elasticity and stretchability
2. simulation wax mold silicone ultra-thin and realistic
the facial features are realistic, and the skin color is exactly like a real person. Some silicone simulation masks and even the pore texture are clearly visible.
3. Features of silicone simulation wax mold:
The silicone wax mold can be used for a long time in the temperature range of -65°C -200°C and maintain its soft and elastic properties.
With excellent electrical properties and chemical stability, water resistance, ozone resistance, weather resistance, non-corrosive, physiologically inert, no Poisonous and tasteless, low linear shrinkage, easy to operate, etc.
Platinum silicone is an application for wax figure manufacturing. It is also used in medical supplies and daily necessities (silicone kitchen products, promotional gifts and silicone baby products), such as medical silicone tubing, food-grade silicone food bag, and silicone baby nipple etc.
DXDF (Zhongshan Grand Orient Wax Art Co., Ltd.) is one of the oldest wax figure manufacturers. The company has over 20 years of experience in this field. Apart from creating wax figures, DXDF has specialized in designing wax museums and indoor and outdoor theme parks. The company also has a popular wax museum brand WeiMuKaiLa. Locals, celebrities, and stars recognize this museum brand.
We have a professional team including an R&D team, 3D team,sculptor team, production and after-sales team. They are created based on videos and pictures. We take about four months to create a perfect statue. For this reason, we assure you that the wax figures reach 99% to 99.5% similarity.
Making a lifelike figure needs time and experts. Besides that, you need complex tools, materials, and artistic talent. Additionally, sculptors have to take precise measurements and characteristics before the figure comes to life. Contact us now!
