All molds have been tested live for you to see.

We use LDPE for the production of our vacuum molds.  In addition to having no moisture absorption, LDPE meets food handling guidelines making it ideal for manufacturing various containers, bottles, bags and certain laboratory equipment. LDPE is stress relieved and has a “natural” color. 

Please note that temps higher than 180 degrees could cause the molds to deform.  Prolonged exposure to sunlight could cause stress cracking to occur.  Please note that these molds are made of a flexible plastic.  Scratching can occur. Please use non-abrasive cleaners. Do not clean in dishwasher, please hand wash.

To make the details appear, please pack in the details before filling the rest of the mold.

What are your molds made of & why are they so strong?

Our molds are made of PLA. PLA stands for Polyactic Acid and is a thermoplastic polymers in that it is derived from renewable resources like corn starch or sugar cane.
 
We use a honeycomb infill in our molds. Did you know that items like racing car shells, jets, helicopters, snowboards, and even rockets use the honeycomb weave? Do you know why? Because they have high "specific strength". What is that? Well as per Wikipedia Specific Strength is defined as "The specific strength is a material's strength (force per unit area at failure) divided by its density. It is also known as the strength-to-weight ratio or strength/weight ratio." This makes them perfect to help hold up under the pressure of the pneumatic or electric presses.
 
Printing Defects
Sometimes there might be slight discoloration, or a slight printing defect. This will not affect the performance of the molds.

How do you use a bath bomb Hand Mold (3d mold)?
 

To use:  Place the bottom plate inside the sleeve of the mold. Add your bath bomb mixture.  We recommend weighing it so you can make the same size bomb each time. Place the top plate on top, and then simply press down hard. Tap all around your mold. You can either push the top and bottom piece out of the sleeve by hand, and then unmolds, or you can use the plunger to push the pieces out. Wipe away any mixture on the inside of the pieces before making the next bath bomb.

How do you use a vacuum mold?

To use: Add a little mix at the bottom of the mold then press into the details. Lightly fill with mix, create a fluffy mountain, and press it into the mold. Using a solid tool with a straight edge like a soap cutter, butter knife or whatever you have on hand, scrape the mold so the back is completely flat and leveled. Turn or smack the mold unto your unmolding space, massage the mold and lightly pull on the corners of the mold to help break the suction. Lift the mold off, if difficult tap the mold while lifting.
