Processing RTV Silicone Rubber and LSR | SIMTEC
The following are processes used for processing the two main types of silicone rubbers: room temperature vulcanization silicone rubber and Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR): Types of Room Temperature Vulcanization (RTV) Silicone Rubber. This type of silicone rubber is available with a wide range of properties.
Computer-Based Assistance in LSR Processing | SIMTEC
Having the capability to simulate the processing of Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) is beneficial to both customers and processors. Processors are aided with having a visualization of changes in the final product based on variations in the processing conditions, design processing validation, and optimization.
Misconceptions about Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) | SIMTEC
The silicone family is made up of an enormous variety of compounds, and is perhaps the most widely used family of materials in the world. Liquid Silicone Rubber materials can be found in consumer products in applications such as appliances and electronics, in astronomy, biotechnology, and in the automotive, aviation, beverage, construction, paint, plumbing, textile, and toy industries.
LSR Components: Why is LSR an Elastomer? - SIMTEC Silicone Parts
Examples of thermoset elastomers are Natural Rubber NR (e. g. truck tires), Styrene-Butadiene Rubber SBR (e. g. hoses and profiles), Nitrile-Butadiene Rubber NBR (e. g. sealing) or LSR components, such as Silicone Rubber MQ.

RTV vs. HCR vs. LSR Injection Molding: Which is Right
LSR has a lower viscosity than solid silicone rubber (HCR). Therefore, it is pumpable and delivered as a two-component, ready-to-use system. Like all silicones, LSR is a popular option for manufacturers in many industries, including automotive, electronics, electrical transmission and distribution, mechanical goods, medical devices and
Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) Parts Injection Molding | SIMTEC
Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) has existed since the late 1970s and has become the material of choice for manufacturing rubber parts and products. The distinctive qualities of liquid silicone rubber injection molding make it different from molding conventional high-consistency silicone and other thermoplastic injection molding processes.

Overcoming Top Challenges in RTV Silicone Rubber Mold Making
The cured rubber mold may appear fine from the outside, but any contaminated areas will remain sticky and not cure. If you use latex gloves in your mold shop, avoid using these gloves in the silicone rubber processing area. Another way to avoid inhibition is to put clean poly film on your work area before you start working with silicone rubber.
Liquid injection molding - Dow
Injection molding of liquid silicone rubber (LSR) is often the preferred choice of producers of rubber parts. That is because LSRs offer better end-product performance, and the injection molding technique offers high levels of automation and almost 24/7 production. LSRs also are ideal for rubber parts in
