Introduction to Liquid Silicone Rubber

ammonium | 20 December, 2017 15:21

Liquid Silicone Rubber is a high purity platinum cured silicone with low compression set, great stability and ability to resist extreme temperatures of heat and cold ideally suitable for production of parts, where high quality is a must.Liquid silicone rubber is usually made from low-viscosity, two-component materials. After mixing the two components, the LSR is injected into a pre-heated PolyJet mold. The LSR part is removed from the mold after curing, and the process is repeated to create the required number of parts. Liquid Silicone Rubber(LSR) molding is a thermoset process that mixes a two-component compound together, which is then heat cured in the mold with a platinum catalyst to produce a final part. LSR parts are formed through an injection-molding process similar to that of conventional plastic injection molding with one major difference — the material delivery system is cooled and the mold is heated.Final LSR parts are strong and elastic with excellent thermal, chemical and electrical resistance. They maintain their physical properties at extreme temperatures and can withstand sterilization. LSR parts are also biocompatible, so they work very well for products that have skin contact. Those benefits lend themselves well to automotive, medical and food appliance industries, typically in the form of seals, gaskets, valves and cables. Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) is a widely used material due to its versatility and unique properties. It is non-reactive and stable, as well as resistant to extreme environments and temperatures. LSR is used in industries that span automotive, defense, sporting goods, medical devices and consumer products.If you are interested in Liquid Silicone Rubber, please feel free to know more about our company- Nanjing Lijie Chemical Industrial Co., Ltd.
