Materials for Silicone Injection Molding
Our team of engineers is skilled at using different types of injection molding machines and high-performance materials, including:
Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR)
LSR is a silicone rubber typically supplied as a two-part system — base and activator — in liquid form. It is mixed and then cured through a process known as vulcanization, which uses heat and catalysts. Moreover, it is recognized for its flexibility and resistance to high temperatures and chemicals.
High Consistency Rubber (HCR)
HCR is a popular material used in medical equipment manufacturing and is frequently applied using injection molding, transfer molding, or compression molding. It is employed to produce catheters, tubing, seals, and gaskets due to its high consistency for precise molding and biocompatibility with living tissue. Also, HCR is resistant to high temperatures and chemicals, making it ideal for body contact and sterile applications.
