The Eco-flex 0030 that I used is below the SHORE A scale. The 00 before the 30 is the key. The 25 SHORE product you mentioned won’t be flexible enough to work at this mold thickness. Maybe if the sleeve was very thin? The wiki link below mentions a rubber band being 25A similar to the material posted above. Too stiff for this design.

Hey TPS, I have found UK distributer, It costs a lot, Like someone mentioned in this thread, $100 or over. But I am willing to buy eco-flex and try it, I was just wondering, you mentioned dragonskin, this costs less and is rated at being hardness of 10A. So is it similar to eco-flex, which is 00-30. Is there a big difference between the two, Also I wanted to know one more thing, What is the thickness of the sleeve one can achieve with eco-flex 00-30. E.g. Could the thickness of the silicone cup/sleeve, be 1-2mm, or maybe even 10mm or more.
Thanks for your help so far!
