LSR (INJECTION MOULDING)
Solutions for injection moulding
The continuously increasing demand for silicone products is based on their special material properties: they can still be shaped even after the initial processing. Since a high elasticity is demanded for many products, this essential difference to many other materials becomes more and more important. Furthermore, the finished products are distinguished by their high temperature stability. This brings about a continuously increasing use in many different industries: from automotive production to household appliances and lifestyle products. Since liquid silicone features only a minor reaction with other materials, it is also perfectly suited for being used in medical engineering.
A major challenge is the fact that the silicone must withstand the demanded application temperatures of -60 to +300 °C. This requires very precise and flawless processing of the low-viscosity 2-component silicone.
