Moulds International Questions

Do the moulds last forever

No, latex perishes over a period of time but by looking after your mould you will get many reproductions from it.  Fibreglass only moulds also need looking after and these will last a lot longer than the latex moulds

How long does it take to get a mould

All of our moulds are made to order - we do not hold any moulds in stock.  Lead time could be up to 6 weeks depending on size of order and workload.  Shipping time will vary depending on which country the moulds are going to.

What are the moulds made from

Our moulds are crafted from the finest latex rubber with a tough, free standing fibreglass outer casing.  Some moulds are free standing fibreglass only.
