Why liquid silicone rubber (LSR) is a great material for producing medical components using injection molding?
Liquid Silicone Rubber Injection Molding has been steadily gaining a foothold in many markets due to its ability to produce intricate elastomeric components with relatively short cycle times. The automotive industry employs silicone high degradation temperatures for engine sealing and medical markets rely on silicone for its biological inertness. Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSRs) can be processed using slightly modified thermoplastic molding equipment, making them easy to integrate into existing business structures and facilities.
