WTB two-part silicone in bulk

Post by StroppyChops » Sun Jun 10, 2018 4:49 pm

I've asked this previously and am still looking for a supplier.

Does anyone know a source IN PHNOM PENH for two-part silicone in 5 to 20 kg units?

To save time, it's not readily available from Aliexpress, and Alibaba ships in tonnes. Let's also assume that all the comments about making sex toys have been made and appreciated. I'm making soap molds.

Good thing this post doesn't include "(with certainty)".

Have you tried Home Top and the other one down the road a bit?

... Home Fix. Yep. About a year ago someone gave me a solid lead to a place on MTT near TTP - I don't know whether they stocked it or not but the staff couldn't have been less helpful, or more interested in Facebook, if they tried.

Or these guys [Url}https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/ ... 5c89S1KuFo[/UrL]
Certainly available. You can be sure the more you need something here, the harder it is to source.

Or any shape you like as long as it's shaped like a bunch of grapes.

The freight cost is a killer.

Preaching to the choir.

Just an update - I contacted one of the Alibaba companies for a 1kg "free sample" as advertised on their page but "sorry, you not understand, sample is only 500gm and you must pay other 500gm and the freight."

The freight I was expecting, the rest was just utter BS.

I replied that 500gm was not a big enough sample for me to test the product, and asked for a quote on shipping 2kg and 5kg.

Was told that as the shipping would be about the same, it would make more sense to order 5kg.

$260 USD for 5kg, on a product that costs $7-12 per kg.

Must be going to drive it down on a tour bus, with Chinese tour guides.

You went ahead and ordered 10Kg though, didn't you?
