LSR Processing

Easy operation of complex processes paired with committed customer service

 

Liquid Silicone Rubber is a material almost everybody has come in touch with nowadays. LSR is found in many products making our life easier and more comfortable like baby pacifiers, shower heads, TV remote controls, diver goggles as well as in many functional textiles.
Even more often it is used in technical products like gaskets, isolators, membranes, technical fabrics, in various medical devices or meanwhile also in “highly transparent” products like lighting components.

The preferred choice to produce LSR products is injection molding, as this process offers the highest levels of automation and the greatest freedom of product design. The injection molding process for Liquid Silicone Rubber is very similar like for thermoplastic polymers.
The main difference is the feeding and mixing of the two component material at ambient temperatures. Ever increasing demands for productivity and quality ask for reliable processing equipment and quality control.
