Next-gen liquid silicone rubber
The system includes a single component base polymer that cures when mixed with LSR Select Control and CATA, utilizing the LSR Select dosing system. Manufacturers can select the Control load level in the process, giving them control over cure kinetics. In other words, they can speed up or slow down the cure for the part they are molding.
Elkem’s selling points for LSR Select include:
- Optimized cure kinetics that can result in cycle time improvements in the 15–40% range;
- The ability to select a custom blend of LSR Select in order to obtain desired durometer performance from 20 to 70;
- It’s possible to achieve cure temperatures with LSR Select at 80 °C and below.
