First let me ask if the 15# urethane is an expanding

I have not poured any expanding foam in a silicone mold.

The foam will expand so much, I am afraid it will distort the
silicone mold.

As far as the Mold Max 40, follow directions and use an aquarium
pump to vibrate the mold box. Use a very small paint brush to
brush the silicone in and around your model. As the air bubbles
come to the top bust them with air from a hairdryer or airbrush.

Have you read the tutorials in here. Art Brush has a very
good one and he is using silicone rubber to make his mold.
