The silicone was a test and it did not work, but the Sylgard (PDMS) 184 seems to be working better. There is a PDF document from a University of Texas http://utwired.engr.utexas.edu/lff/symposium/proceedingsArchive/pubs/Manuscripts/2011/2011-06-Zhou.pdf
with some info on the forces that the cured resin is subjected to.
Can someone else ( other than Michael - B9 )give some details on the practical trials of PDMS, as I do not have it to test.

> Ok, i have another question regarding the coating on the bottom of the vat that prevents the resin from sticking. I understand the process of using silicon as Peter describes on his website but I was wondering if anyone has tried the anti graffiti spray I saw in the links portion of the forum? Or any other methods that provide good results.
