  • White Paper: Mold Releasing Process and Silicone
    With the increasing use of cast and injection molded wheels, questions of how these molded wheels are released from their molds and whether or not silicone is used in the process often arise. To answer this, it must first be understood that the release process for casting and injection molding
  • Cockling-Protecting PSA Release Liners from Heat and Humidity (.pdf)
    , humidity will cause it to wrinkle and buckle, especially. during the summer months. To anyone who has manufactured or used pressure-sensitive. tapes with a silicone-coated paper release liner, cockling is an all too familiar sight. Cockling can destroy the adhesive system and cause major problems
  • Medical Device Link . MPMN Hotline Process Speeds Prototyping of Silicone Medical Products Stereolithography Systems Use Solid-State UV Laser Medical Design Excellence Awards Program Announced
    Vesta Inc., a manufacturer of custom silicone medical devices based in Franklin, WI, has developed a prototyping process that can reduce prototype times by as much as 70% as compared with traditional methods. The Quick Response process is based on the company's ability to mold medical-grade liquid
  • Medical Device Link .
    Designed to protect wounds and promote healing, a line of silicones is suited for use in wound-care applications. In addition to its biocompatibility, purity, and performance characteristics, Silpuran liquid silicone rubber features good vapor permeability that yields breathable medical dressings
  • Medical Device Link .
    Biomimetic Silicones Take a Cue from Nature A team of biomaterials and drug-delivery scientists at the School of Pharmacy, Queen s University Belfast (QUB; Belfast, Northern Ireland) has developed a patented technology for the production of biomimetic silicone materials that can imitate the body
  • Medical Device Link .
    Biomimetic Silicones Take a Cue from Nature A team led by a professor at Queen's University Belfast (Northern Ireland) has developed a patented technology for the production of biomimetic silicone materials that can imitate the body's natural defense mechanisms. With a coefficient of friction
  • Medical Device Link .
    A company has developed a line of thermoplastic segmented silicone-urethane copolymers. PurSil and CarboSil copolymers exhibit the strength, flex life, processability, and abrasion resistance of urethanes and the biostability and biocompatibility of silicones. Additionally, silicone, fluorocarbon
  • Medical Device Link .
    top coat to reduce the surface friction of silicone elastomer parts enables LSR, heat-cured and room temperature vulcanised elastomers to be employed in areas where silicones have not formerly been an option. Example applications are. orthopaedics: reduced friction in skin contact applications
