Momentive Self-Bonding LSR Solutions For Healthcare
What is Self-Bonding Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR)?
Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) is a two-component versatile class of pumpable silicone elastomers that can be molded and cured with fast cycle times and at elevated temperatures. Momentive offers a broad range of self-bonding LSR products that can be molded into precise shapes and dimensions, maintaining their flexibility and resistance in injection molding applications.
Momentive Liquid Silicone Rubber In Health Care Applications:
Momentive offers a range of LSR products that enable the production of a broad range of disposable and reusable medical devices and supplies. It meets regulatory compliance, biocompatibility, and withstands repeated sterilization processes.
They also offer primer-less adhesion without post-curing to various substrates. Momentive LSR solutions also enable the manufacturing of articles for healthcare parts when plastics and elastomers need to be combined in over-molding or insert-molding processes.
