Silopren* LSR 4600 Series Liquid Silicone Rubber

IMPROVED TEAR RESISTANCE, HIGHER REACTIVITY

The  Silopren* LSR 4600 series is a  biocompatible liquid silicone rubber (LSR) for injection molding processes.  Products in this series are fast curing LSRs that can lead to shorter cycle times.  The excellent thermal stability provides resistance to a variety of sterilization methods including steam autoclave, E-beam and gamma irradiation, and ethylene oxide.  This series can be considered for a variety of molded medical device components such as o-rings, diaphragms, needle-free access valves, septums, and breast pump shields, as well as infant care and consumer goods applications including baby bottle nipples, pacifiers, sippy cup valves and wearable electronics.

 

The Silopren LSR 4600 series is available in Shore A hardnesses of, 40, 50, 60 and 70 durometer.
