Innovative compounding solutions
Usually silicone polymers are transparent or translucent in their basic form, so customer can choose between virtually any colour tone according to RAL or L*a*b* scale. We are equipped with spectrophotometer, which enables us to match the colour perfectly.
Compounds can be made for compression or injection molding, extrusion (hot air curing) or curing in autoclave. Depending on viscosity, we classify silicones as HCR (high consistency rubber) or LSR (liquid silicone rubber).
We design exclusive recipies for each individual project
In close cooperation with our customers, we design exclusive recipies for each individual project, by varing hardness, colour, elongation, rebound, media resistance, self-extinguisig properties, etc.
Physical properties of HCR silicones range from tensile strength of 5 to 11 MPa, hardness from 5 to 95 ShA and elongation from 120 till 1200%, depending on actual hardness and application intended.
The weathering stability of silicones is so good that they can be used without restriction in the open air. Their high resistance to detergents and cleaning agents also makes them outstanding processing auxiliaries for all drinking water and sanitary applications.
Having lower viscosity, for a given hardness, than conventional rubber, silicone elastomers are easily processable. The viscosity of consistency of HCR silicone ranges from putty soft to clay hard. By choosing the right crosslinking system, we are able to custom set the operating temperature from 90°C, up to 210°C, to set an optimum between productivity and production costs, depending on production process itself.
