WATERFORD, N.Y. (January, 2017) – Momentive
Performance Materials Inc. (“Momentive”) announced it will be
demonstrating Silopren* LSR 4655 SL
liquid silicone rubber live at the 2017 MD& M West show held February 7 – 9
in Anaheim, CA.
The live demonstration
will take place at the Momentive booth on a BOY injection press using a Kipe
4-cavity LSR mold and 2KM Dosing system.
The part produced will be a one way access valve with slit intended to
illustrate the product benefits and features of the Silopren LSR 4655 SL liquid
Silopren LSR 4655 SL is a
two-component, self-lubricating liquid silicone rubber for injection molding
processes that provides a lubricious surface on the molded part after
vulcanization. It enhances lubricity for specialized applications requiring a
high-slip surface not typically achievable via traditional silicone molded
parts. Silopren LSR 4655 SL liquid silicone rubber may eliminate the need for
secondary lubrication processes to reduce the coefficient of friction, which
can improve the mounting efficiency of molded parts during the assembly of
devices. It also is able to be customized in a range of durometers and
lubricant load levels to meet specific performance requirements. Silopren LSR
4655 SL liquid silicone rubber is USP Class VI and ISO 10993 (parts 5, 6, 10,
and 11) biocompatible.
Momentive’s family of liquid silicone rubber materials
(LSR) enable health care device designers and equipment manufacturers to
introduce improved material features for critical applications such as needle-free
access valves, O-rings, stoppers, seals and assembled parts.
