With a state-of-the-art facility located in Miramar, Florida, we can quickly turn around high-volume orders of nearly any design complexity and other requirements.
Liquid Silicone Molding
Liquid Injection Molding, or LIM, is a term used by some companies to refer to Liquid Silicone Rubber Injection Molding (LSR LIM).
LSR LIM, or Liquid Injection Molding, is a manufacturing method that molds materials into different products. Silicone is one of the materials most commonly used in Liquid Injection Molding. The benefit of using this manufacturing method is that it can efficiently and effectively produce an array of products such as seals, O-rings, isolators, and electronic contacts.
In addition, LSR LIM is a process that allows for the high volume production of durable parts. Because Liquid Silicone Rubber is a high purity platinum cured silicone with low compression set, great stability and ability to resist extreme temperatures of heat and cold, it is highly suitable for the production of parts, where high quality is a necessity.
EXAMPLE of LSR LIM Liquid Injection Molding
The incredible versatility of LSR LIM comes from the material properties of Liquid Silicone Rubber. Silicone is able to sustain a high degree of heat and flame resistance, tensile strength and flexibility. Additionally, Liquid Silicone Rubber allows for coloring or transparency in the finished product. Depending on their chemical compositions, these materials can also serve as insulators or conductors. LSR LIM permits the production of highly customized, high precision parts and components.
