miniatures for wargames
Meaning you never have to deal with factories in China. You can keep all your production in-house and support your local economy!
Another successful case is Warlord Games, in which they were able to produce over 400,000 units of the plane for Blood Red Skies, using SiOCAST’s process in 4 different colors. Traditionally, this type of big batch production would only be feasible with injection molding, and the level of detail wouldn’t be the same.
"We start with metal, then resin, and now SiOres. And it has given us much more speed when it comes to production, it makes it easier for us to produce small quantities, and it gives us flexibility in the size of the productions depending on our products.
Our customers are very satisfied, the main change that our customers notice compared to resin is that SIOCAST pieces are much more resistant and flexible. That is why we are transferring all our production to SiOCAST."

There are a lot of companies already moving to the new solution as it’s non-toxic, the sprues can be recycled, and is cheap enough for smaller companies to get good molds that are still fast.
Compared to resin or plastic, it is less toxic, the miscasts and sprues can be reused, and when compared to resin, it doesn’t take nearly as long and doesn’t have to cool. Overall, it is lighter, can make colored models, and is cheaper than metal.

extreme detail for demanding hobbyists
The SiOCAST process can keep the same extreme details of the resin miniatures.
The SiOres material has a matte finish that highlights the shadows and the sculpt relief and crispiness.

discover a new way to paint your minis
With SiOres there is no need on priming or clean the raw miniatures and the paint won't peel or crack when you manipulate, touch, or bend the mini. Painters love it.
reduced mold lines
Mold lines are better and sometimes invisible with SiOCAST because the hard HTV silicone molds hold their shape and structure better over time than RTV silicone.
