few things could have caused it to cure improperly.

Didn't mix it thoroughly enough.

Used the wrong mixing proportions.

Incompatible materials (some resin's won't cure in certain rubbers)

I'm not familiar with that rubber though.

I looked at the sheet for that rubber..it says 1:1 by volume. kinda hard to mess that up, lol

have you poured more then one? Or did you fuck up the first time and stop?
