Silopren* LSR 2725/40 liquid silicone rubber

Self Bonding – Self-Lubrication

Silopren LSR 2725/40 is a two-component, self-lubricating, liquid silicone rubber for injection molding, offering robust primerless adhesion to a wide range of substrates, including PBT, without adhesion to the mold. Silopren LSR 2725/40 allows design and manufacturing of composite parts where the seal assembly is replaced by a direct overmolding onto the plastic substrate. The adhesion ensures  the components remainin place, while the the lubrication functionality reduces assembly forces. This material is is broadly used in the manufactur of elastomeric articles requiring self-lubricating properties, such asseals for electrical connectors in the automotive industry.

More About Silopren* LSR 2725/40 liquid silicone rubber

System integration, cost-saving considerations and increased focus on reliability pushes development of composite two-component, hard-soft combinations. Self-bonding LSRs such as Silopren LSR 2740 are frequently used in automotive, consumer and E/E applications.

 

The initial bond strength of Silopren* LSR 2725/40 allows for demolding, while full bond strength is reached after a period of storage at room temperature. Additionally, Silopren LSR 2725/40 is self-lubricating. The self-lubricating effect is achieved by a fluid which exudes from the vulcanizate over an extended period of time, andtypically starts between two and twenty-four hours after vulcanization. The material has a whitish appearance and can be easily pigmented with LSR color-pastes available from Momentive.

 

This combination of features makes Silopren LSR 2725/40 liquid silicone rubber ideal for cost-efficient injection molding of a range of two-component,hard-soft-combinations, with integrated and lubricated sealing. Potential  applications include  connectors, sealing components for boxes and housings in the automotive industry.

 

 

Key Features and Typical Benefits

  • Primer-less adhesion to many thermoplastic substrates
  • No adhesion to the mold /no special mold treatment needed
  • Self-lubrication for easy assembly
  • High temperature stability
  • Excellent stability and flexibility at low temperatures
  • Favorable aging behavior and weathering resistance
  • Good dielectric and mechanical properties
  • Ease of pigmentation with LSR color-pastes

 

Potential Applications

Because of its outstanding adhesion properties, Silopren LSR 2725/40 liquid silicone rubber is an excellent candidate for manufacturing parts where engineering plastics need to be combined with integrated sealing or dampening properties in an over-molding or insert molding process, such as:

  • Connector-Assemblies
  • Sealing Components for Housings and Boxes
  • Other two-component, hard-soft combinations
