Breakthrough LSR Technology Delivers Customization Capabilities with Precision Results

 

 

Elkem Silicones will showcase its innovative customizable liquid silicone rubber (LSR) system, LSR Select™, at the LSR 2019 Conference in Schaumburg, Ill., from Sept. 9-12.

LSR Select™ is a patented system that gives users control to create custom cure kinetics and durometer blends resulting in proven improved productivity and precise results in the silicone molding process.

Molders can blend bases of differing hardnesses in line to achieve custom durometer blends of 20 to 70 ShA, delivering consistent results for their specific performance requirements.

In addition, LSR SELECT™ offers low temperature cure of 80°C, thus expanding flexibility for overmolding of electronics and heat sensitive plastics.

Elkem Silicones also will highlight its Silbione™ grade of LSR Select™ products, which are ideal for use in healthcare devices for skin contact and implantation less than 30 days. The Silbione™ brand ensures clean manufacturing and biocompatibility support.
