  • Medical Device Link . Comparing Liquid and High Consistency Silicone Rubber Elastomers: Which Is Right for You?
    , replacement finger joints, and pump diaphragms. Low viscosity makes liquid silicone rubbers suitable for molding applications requiring complex, intricate molds. Photos: Dow Corning Corp. These elastomers are commercially available in two types: millable high consistency silicone rubber and pumpable liquid
  • Dow Corning helps a customer solve their customers' problems
    ST Services manufactures meter/mix dispensing equipment that their customers. use for molding silicone rubber medical products. Founded in 1995, they sell. about $1 million worth of equipment a year. Part of their customers' process. involves pumping uncured liquid silicone through pressurized
  • Oil-Resistant Rubbers
    , particularly with regard to dynamic response. Neoprenes are a large family of rubbers that have a property profile approaching that of natural rubber, and with better resistance to oils, ozone, oxidation, and flame. They age better and do not soften on heat exposure, although high-temperature tensile
  • The Time-Temperature-Transformation Diagram
    An informative presentation of the curing incorporating the degree of cure is the Time-Temperature-Transformation (TTT) diagram, developed by Enns and Gillham. It can be used to relate the material properties of thermosets, such as Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR), as a function of time and processing
  • Specifying elastomer footpads
    their origins in the 1920s when felt on the feet of furniture kept scuff marks off wooden floors. Later, rubber pads on telephones helped eliminate mars on desktops. Custom-blended urethane materials dominate the footpad market today, with molded solid urethane with an adhesive backing top-ping
  • Stick With the Right Adhesive
    , and rubber. Cyanoacrylates cure rapidly at room temperature to form thermoplastic resins when confined between two substrates in the presence of microscopic surface moisture. Cure initiates at the substrate surface, limiting cure-through gap to about 0.01 in. Cyanoacrylates build fixture strength
  • Material and Process Selection, Controlling the Stretch, Industry Standards
    with the design and construction of a precision machined steel mold. This mold, or tool, consists of two or more steel plates into which the rubber is placed or injected. These plates are exposed to heat and pressure to cure the part. The exact mix of time, temperature and pressure depends on the molding
  • Medical Device Link .
    Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry Polymer Design Corp., Rockland, MA Pouring liquid rubber or plastic into molds, then allowing it to cure to solid form, describes the fundamentals of liquid resin casting. A technically refined version of this decades-old process is a reliable
