Silicone Molding: LSR’s Broad Hardness Spectrum

While today’s popular non-stick bakeware products manufactured out of Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) are flexible to the touch, they maintain a certain degree of resistance to deformation. While ear buds or in-ear headphones, on the other hand, require a close and comfortable fit with a flexibility that enables it to match the shape of the inner ear for a more natural feel.
