Thermal Stress in LSR Due to Temperature Cycling

Stress relaxation is a manifestation of viscoelastic behavior. Although the time-temperature shift principle appears to work properly, in real applications, the material experiences temperature variation and/or thermal cycling.

As we know, Liquid Silicone Rubbers combine the generally advantageous qualities of silicone with highly effective processing of high precision articles such as seals, electrical connectors, sealing…. Read More >>

Viscosity of Silicone Rubber

Silicone fluids have important applications in many modern fields including the automotive, electrical, and medical industries. Their advantages include high temperature and chemical resistance, optical transparency, and good electrical properties. Certain application areas and processing steps require a reliable rheological model.

Compounds based on silicone rubbers are designed to process well in molding…. Read More >>

Classification of Liquid Silicone Rubber

To achieve specific application properties, it is sometimes necessary to employ specific LSR technologies.

All silicone elastomers consist of crosslinked polydimethyl siloxane (PDMS) molecules, fillers, and additives.  Here, we are going to explain the classifications of Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) and the difference between the grades.

First, we must remember that Liquid Silicone Rubbers…. Read More >>
