NOVOCS™ solvents are low viscosity silicone solvents that evaporate quickly. NOVOCS™ is particulary useful in thinning down Psycho Paint® silicone paint base to apply via brush or airbrush to cured platinum silicone rubber props and prosthetics. When used as a solvent for thinning silicone paints or surface coatings, NOVOCS™ Gloss will leave a gloss finish. WARNING - FLAMMABLE Liquid and vapor. Keep away from ignition sources and follow precautions for handling flammables.
Materials should be stored and used in a warm environment (73 F / 23 C). This material has a limited shelf life and should be used as soon as possible. Wear safety glasses, long sleeves and rubber gloves to minimize contamination risk.
Mix the A and B components of two component silicone sytems before adding NOVOCS. Add the desired proportion of NOVOCS solvent to create a thinner silicone mixture which can be brushed or airbrushed onto the surface of a cured silicone casting.
Example Recommended Ratios For Use:
When adding to Psycho Paint, add between 200%-400% NOVOCS solvent by weight
When adding to Sil-Poxy, add between 300%-500% NOVOCS solvent by weight
Because no two applications are quite the same, a small test application to determine suitability for your project is recommended if performance of this material is in question.
