Liquid silicone rubber (LSR) injection molding excels in creating complex shapes, efficiently integrating multiple functions into a single component. This flexibility has made it a preferred choice across various sectors such as automotive, healthcare, industrial, infant care, consumer goods, and electronics. These industries leverage LSR’s adaptability to both low and high-viscosity rubber silicones for efficient, cost-effective part production.

What is Liquid silicone rubber moulding?

Liquid Silicone Rubber Injection Molding Part

Liquid Silicone Rubber Injection Molding Part

Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) molding is a versatile manufacturing process that is ideal for creating complex geometries and integrating multiple functional elements into a single component. It is a thermoset process that mixes a two-component compound together, which is then heat cured in the mold with a platinum catalyst to produce a final part.

Liquid Silicone Rubber’s flexibility allows it to take on nearly any shape, making it an ideal choice for various products requiring precision molding. In addition, LSR’s resistance to extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, ensures product stability and longevity even under harsh conditions. Furthermore, LSR is resistant to UV radiation, making products made from this material ideal for outdoor use. Its bio-inertness makes it suitable for medical applications as it can withstand sterilization processes, and its electrical insulation properties make it suitable for various electronic components.

Materials used in liquid silicone rubber injection molding

Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) is the primary material used in liquid silicone rubber injection molding. This is a two-part, curable, flexible, heat-resistant silicone rubber. It is specifically designed for injection molding and processing applications, offering superb precision, durability, and stability.

Liquid silicone rubber solidifies rapidly after mixing and cooling, making it an ideal choice for high-volume manufacturing. It can resist extreme temperature variations, making it useful in applications requiring high-temperature and low-temperature performance.

In some specialized applications, we may also use additives or fillers to modify the properties of liquid silicone rubber, such as increasing its flame retardancy, abrasion resistance, or changing its color. This customizability allows us to provide our clients with solutions that meet their specific needs.
