Pre-Vulcanized Latex

This is a useful flexible molding material for making casts of missing details such as flowers, handles, arms, hands, and feet in china restoration. While it can be used for larger items, it must be backed up with bandages to reduce its considerable shrinkages and to prevent tearing. In most cases a release coat (of soap or talc, for example) is recommended. If a bronze object is to be remolded, 1% thiourea (in the form of a 10% aqueous solution) should be added to the latex to prevent the ammonia in the latex from reacting with the copper.
