The tube-in casting molds allow you to case objects on your tubes such as labels, stamps, metal foil, or anything else you can imagine. These molds use stoppers that go through the side of the mold to plug the tube. The stoppers are reusable for multiple casts and provide a good seal for the tube. These molds can be used under pressure without fear of leakage.
Most tube-in series are universal in nature, if the tube length is close and bushings are the same size or smaller, then the tube-in blank should cast properly. If you are looking to save money, the common molds such as sierra, junior or patriot can cast smaller tubes with the aid of adjustable spacers you can make for a few extra dollars with our replacement stoppers. Please visitIAP Kit Bushing and Tube Referencefor various pen kit dimensions.
As of 2018, all molds come standard in the blue silicone molds which work for all resins - polyester, urethane, or epoxy. Pink versions of these molds will only be available while current supplies last.
Mold release sprays help to extend the shelf life of our molds. We recommend Stoner Themoset for Polyester and Epoxy Resins, and Stoner Urethane for Urethane Resin.
