As you have perceived, the Silicone Rubber market is currently facing important challenges related to shortage of raw materials, limited production capacity and price increases up to 30%, while demand keeps rising.

Together we aspire to build long term partnerships, develop a collaborative supply-chain and design services creating value for you and us.
