Liquid Injection Molding
Liquid Injection Molding or LIM is a term used by some companies to refer to Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR LIM) Injection Molding.
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 method of manufacturing 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 Injection molding of liquid silicone rubber 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 production of parts, where high quality is a must.
The incredible versatility of LSR LIM liquid injection molding comes from the material properties of liquid silicone materials. Silicone is able to sustain a high degree of heat and flame resistance, tensile strength, and flexibility. Additionally, silicones provide molding and flexibility, permitting coloring or transparency in the finished product. Depending on their chemical composition, these materials can also serve as insulators or conductors. This allows LSR LIM liquid injection molding to produce highly accurate results when manufacturing liquid silicone.
