The production of gas appliances is full of unique requirements. Thankfully, there is a unique material perfect for those demands. Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) offers physical properties and characteristics that make it ideal for applications involving the control of the flow of gas. The properties and characteristics of LSR, coupled with the precision and output available with the injection molding process to manufacture, are perfectly suited for components used in gas appliances.Thin LSR membranes, valves, seals, and diaphragms can be found throughout gas furnaces, water heaters, washers and dryers, ovens, stoves or grills
Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) is the ideal material for parts with skin contact that need to meet hygiene, comfort, and biocompatibility requirements. Because it is also flexible and inert, it is the preferred choice for a wide variety of applications.
Mothers have high standards for the items they use to take care of their children, and so does the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last updated in May 2019 in a guidance to provide additional information on how to prepare Food Contact Notifications (FCNs) for food contact substances that will come into contact with infant formula and/or human (breast) milk. Mother and child care products require materials that are hypoallergenic, durable, smooth and comfortable, and easy to clean. For these characteristics, liquid silicone rubber (LSR) has emerged as the material of choice.
