Silicone rubber is made of a high-viscosity silicone polymer that combines both inorganic and organic properties and high-purity silica. Characteristically biocompatible and inert, it is widely applicable to various healthcare products.
Silicone products used in medical devices include
- -Liquid silicone rubber (LSR) that can be easily processed by high-speed injection molding equipment with high tear strength and various hardness grades
- -Silicone rubber compound with excellent transparency, elasticity, high temperature, and chemical stability
- -Custom silicone formulations including antibacterial elastomers and X-ray-detectable, radiation-shielding materials
- -Special silicone elastomers such as liquid silicone rubber with high transparency like glass and UV curable silicone elastomer that does not require high-temperature process and self-lubricating LSR
Momentive's silicone elastomers solve the tough challenges facing healthcare and
support the medical device manufacturers' production of orthopedic devices that
offer a strong, comfortable fit, transparent, resilient medical tubes,
and sterilization-resistant and durable dental and surgical devices.
