Moulding Silicones

Silicone elastomers with very low shrink characteristics making it suitable for use making moulds with very high dimensional accuracy. Addition cure silicone is also very durable making it ideal for repetitive casting operations. In furniture applications, silicone elastomers offer a variety of products for the architectural and furniture industries. For those smaller, more detailed parts where lower durometers can be used, condensation cure products.

Some of our Products: RTV7888-20, RTV426, RTV430, are offered. Larger parts requiring greater dimensional stability may best be  molded using addition cure products such as RTV664, RTV668, RTV868, TSE3453, TSE3455T,  TSE3456T, and TSE3466.

 

Textile Industry

Both products RTV and LSR are based on the addition reaction. The designation as LSR or RTV is not always logical in textile coating because both product types are cured at elevated temperature. The naming is based on the product and application history. The Liquid Silicone Elastomers (LSE or LSR) products are resin type textile coatings. They are a very good choice when a smooth and non-blocking surface is required. RTV cure products for lace coating, clothes, conveyor belt, fabric coating, lamination, silicone to silicone bonding etc.

Some of our products: Silopren LSR 2530, Silopren LSR 2540, Silopren LSR 2560, RTV 820, RTV 830, RTV 833, RTV 834.
