Momentive Liquid Silicone Rubbers Showcased at Fakuma 2009

October 08, 2009

Innovative Materials on New Compact Injection Machines for Small Parts

ALBANY, N.Y., October 8, 2009 — Momentive Performance Materials will introduce new developments in liquid silicone rubber (LSR) at Fakuma 2009 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, October 13-17, 2009. In collaboration with equipment suppliers, Momentive will be demonstrating two new families of LSR (Liquid Silicone Rubber) during the Fair.

At booth 2107 in Hall B2, Momentive will offer an ongoing live demonstration of LSR molding with one of the smallest LSR injection molding machines available. The Babyplast machine runs fully automated with the new fully fluorinated FFSL from Momentive. This new LSR elastomer combines the processability of an LSR (short cycle time, flashless, trim-free parts) with the resistance against fuel and oil of a fluorosilicone. The Babyplast machine is also available with a recently launched LSR kit, including material supply from a standard cartridge system and a cold-runner block with needle-gate-valve. JuHa, a key supplier of seals for wire harness applications, built the one-cavity mold for the molded single-wire seal.

In Hall A7, booth 7020, Dr. Boy, a leading manufacturer of injection molding machines, will feature another recently launched material innovation from Momentive – the ultra-transparent LSR 7000 family. Dr. Boy’s new small LSR molding machine is optimized for small molds/shot-weight, based on a piston injection unit including a pneumatic needle gate valve for gateless injection. Material is supplied with a two-component cartridge system. Emde, experts in LSR molding, built the single cavity mold. Leveraging Dr. Boy’s new machine, an optical light guide demonstration will highlight the glass-clear appearance of LSR 7070, which combines outstanding flexibility with high heat and UV light resistance.

As in previous years, leading suppliers of LSR molds and turnkey systems, including Rico, Elmet and Emde, will be in attendance at the Momentive booth. Visitors will be able to obtain critical information on LSR projects in one location and get a precise picture of the technical and commercial feasibility of their new product ideas. With a number of experienced LSR equipment suppliers as exhibitors at Fakuma, the Momentive team can help to organize contact points and discussions within its LSR industry network.

In addition to the new LSR families, Momentive will showcase new material innovations at Fakuma, including fiber reinforced LSR materials, UV curable HCRs, antimicrobial LSRs, and new custom compounds.
