How to Use Anchor-Dit™

When making a mold of an object, it is often necessary to adhere the object to the work surface. When making food grade molds, conventional adhesives should not be used due to toxicity and also due to the fact that they can inhibit the proper cure of food grade silicone.

Step 2

Anchor-Dit Food Grade Temporary Adhesive For Mold MakingAnchor-Dit™ is a food grade, temporary adhesive that is used to adhere an object to a work surface so that silicone mold making materials do not creep underneath  it and interfere with the making of a good quality mold. Anchor-Dit™ also binds a buoyant object to a work surface so that it does not float when liquid silicone is poured over it.  
Applying Anchor-Dit To Surface
Bonding Surfaces With Anchor-Dit

Apply Anchor-Dit™ about a 1/16” to the bottom of the object and press the object down on a work surface so that the Anchor-Dit™ “smooshes” out all sides.
