  • Blow-moldable TPVs give silicone rubbers the boot
    Blow molding is a well-established process that lets designers glean more design freedom and drop part cost by easing assembly via parts consolidation. Problem is, conventional low-durometer ( <45 Shore D) materials suitable for blow molding have notoriously been plagued by one significant

    , and solvents should not be used with silicones. Mechanical Properties. Silicone rubbers have high tear (to 250 ppi) and tensile (to 1500 psi) strength, good elongation (to 1250%) and flexibility, low compression set, and a durometer range of 5 to 80 Shore A. The softer forms of silicone have the ability
