LIQUID SILICONE RUBBERS (LSRs) are two-component platinum-catalyzed silicone
elastomers designed for liquid injection molding healthcare and medical
devices, including applications of less than 30 day implantation in the human body.
SILBIONE LSRs are supplied as kit-matched products. Parts A and B components are designed to be mixed with standard liquid injection molding or casting processing equipment and techniques. Airless mixing, metering and dispensing equipment are recommended.
Cure is initiated once the two part A and part B components are mixed and can be accelerated by heating the mixed elastomer. Cure is dependent upon molding temperature and part size.
Special care must be taken to assure clean molds and a clean work area with no organic rubbers used on the same processing equipment.
Caution: Traces of foreign materials can poison the catalyst and inhibit the cure. All metering and mixing equipment should be thoroughly cleaned. Polymer systems, which contain traces of amines, sulfur, nitrogen oxide, organotin compounds and carbon monoxide can interfere with the cure of this product and should be avoided.
Note: Kit matching, accurate measuring and complete mixing are essential factors in obtaining consistent results.
