Default Resin Casting help in Edmonton

I need to cast some plastic parts. Has anyone done this themselves in Edmonton? The reason I ask is to find local retailers/distributors of resin and silicone for casting and molds.

Any lead would help.

I'm looking for products such as Quantum Silicones QM 270 and a Rigid polyurethane Innovative Polymers IE-3075.

I have some urethane that I used to stiffen a transmission mount. Would that be useful to you?

Viking Plastics has a lot of different stuff. I get fiberglass/carbon fiber supplies from them but they have a bunch mask making / mold making stuff too. They have a website, they are over on the south east.

Thank you for the info, i havent had a chance yet but will check Viking Plastics out, it seems also some hobby shops carry required materials.

JustinL I would not be able to use it, I need it for a small part with fine detail, gotta make a mold and the resin needs to have specific properties to be appropriate for making the part, thank you though.

Is 3D printing your parts an option, instead of casting?

Dale over at Widget Works has an industrial 3D printer. I am not sure what it prints in, but it is structural rather than just for show.
