Determining the right material and process for part production represents one of the most crucial steps in product development. Quantities, lead times, budgets and design features must measure up against numerous variables, including market success and future design changes.
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 >>
Injection molding of Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) is a process used to produce pliable, durable parts in high volumes. During the process, several components are necessary: an injector, a metering unit, a supply drum, a mixer, a nozzle, and a mold clamp, among others.
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 >>
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 >>
