SILICONES & RUBBERS
MOST COMMONLY USED BY OUR CUSTOMERS
Silicones and Rubbers are commonly used in consumer goods, automotive and medical applications. Liquid silicone rubbers (LSR) has a long history in the medical sectors, and multiple bio-compatible types has been developed.
Producing LSR, and other elastomers via Freeform Injection Molding (FIM) provides several advantages: Cheap and fast prototyping without thinking about split lines and flashes; and the thermal-insulating effect of the FIM tools, allows for longer injection time, longer flows, and more advanced geometries without thinking about long run-in sessions.
