Injection moldable elastomer

  • 31-Mar-2008 07:12 EDT

Silastic 100% fluoro liquid silicone rubber (F-LSR) from Dow Corning is a fully fluorinated two-part injection moldable elastomer designed to meet increasingly stringent automotive engine temperature, fuel, and oil-resistance specifications while improving environmental sustainability during manufacturing. This solution combines the ease of processing of liquid silicone rubber (LSR) with the temperature and fuel resistance characteristics of fluorosilicone rubber (FSR) to improve manufacturing efficiency and part performance. Silastic 100% F-LSR provides labor savings, higher equipment capacity, and reduced scrap rates to customers currently using high-consistency fluorosilicone rubber. Automated injection molding with Silastic 100% F-LSR makes the production of intricately designed, high-quality, high-precision parts possible.
