Silicone care guide
Owning a specialty product made from high grade materials can be a bit daunting. If you’re new to it, congrats! Platinum cured silicone is one of, if not the most, resilient and premium materials a soft body safe toy can be made from. At the same time, it’s a little bit strange around certain other materials, or other materials may act strangely around it. These reactions are very rare, but it pays to be cautious.
Much like other toy manufacturers, for the utmost safety of your new purchase we recommend storing it out of contact with any other silicone, vinyl, or plastic toys. While theoretically platinum cure silicone does not interact with itself in any way, additives, colorants, or various other manufacturing quirks may not be so lucky. While platinum silicone itself is very stable, there are several materials which may harm your toy and cause it to bond, melt, or even stain with color.
We recommend keeping the toy in its provide frosted PVC bag when not in use to prevent such interactions, though keep in mind that the PVC bag itself may be harmful to lower-quality vinyl toys. Ralware LLC is not responsible for negative reactions with other materials or toys, nor damage done to the bag or toy itself from outside interactions. We are also not responsible for damage caused by misuse such as stress testing or purposeful damage.
A few notable examples of negative reactions include:
- Platinum cure silicone will stick and then permanently fuse to glossy photo paper. The toy must be cut off with scissors.
- While this has never happened in my testing, there are reports that silicone can interact poorly with silicone-based lubricant, causing the bonds of the silicone toy to break down back into a liquid. Test any lubricants on firmness pucks or a nondescript area of the base of the toy before committing.
If taken care of, platinum cure silicone toys should last for and can be enjoyed for years and years to come.
