Silicone is a polymer that acts just like an elastomer as it can be very elastic and flexible. Silicone rubber is a material used for high quality parts due to its low compression set, stability and high heat resistance. Silicone rubber is often used in overmolding onto other rubber or polymer products.
Silicone molding is the preferred injection molding process for products such as seals, membranes, infant products and certain types of bellows, gaskets and o-rings. Silicone rubber products are able maintain structural integrity when placed under extreme heat and pressure.
With the ability to custom mold rubber and polymer components using compression molding, injection molding and transfer molding, the ISO certified company Advanced Rubber Products employs the appropriate method for your needs.
