Medical Liquid Silicone Parts
Medical Grade Silicone is a very popular material for medical device manufacturers because of its durability,excellent thermal, chemical and electrical resistance, wide useful temperature range, high tensile strength, vast range of available durometers, biocompatibility, and compatibility with many sterilization methods.
Medical Grade Liquid Silicone Rubber is biocompatible so it is frequently used in products that require skin contact.
Medical Grade LSR's feature:
Fast cure times at low vulcanizing temperatures
Short molding cycle time (which can greatly reduce the cost per molded part),
As the mold will not need to heat for a long time, which also save energy for each silicone part .
All of these making lower production costs for medical-grade LSR products, and because the cost of the products is lower so consequently, for the patients and insurance companies they can purchase these products in lower cost as well.
Medical Grade Liquid Silicone can accept lower injection pressure, will allow silicone medical device manufacturers to use lower tonnage injection presses.
These LSRs’ broad process windows can enable lower defect and scrap rates, due to a more forgiving molding process.
