Look for everything from automotive hybrid composites to medical in-mold assembly.
From micromolding to 650-ton presses will be operating with robots, IML, LSR, Varioutherm, foam, and two-shot molding.
Feeding device for small amounts of premixed LSR as a single component.
LSR gains a place in automotive cooling systems.
Next-generation LSR will bond to additional engineering thermoplastics.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Liquid fluorosilicone elastomers are used for injection molding medical parts with higher chemical resistance than ordinary LSR.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Two new liquid silicone rubber (LSR) grades for fast production of soft yet bite-resistant silicone pacifiers and bottle nipples were recently launched by Germany’s Wacker Chemie (U.S. office in Adrian, Mich.).
At the recent Fakuma 2011 show in Germany, Momentive Performance Materials Inc., Albany, N.Y., introduced three new LSR systems.
