THE LSM ADVANTAGE...
ADDED VALUE, HIGH PERFORMANCE AND EFFICIENCY WITH LIQUID SILICONE RUBBER
THE LSM ADVANTAGE IS REAL - The liquid silicone rubber injection molding process combines the processing advantages of thermoplastic-type molding with outstanding physical properties of thermoset silicone rubbers.
MAJOR BENEFITS OF THIS UNIQUE PROCESS ARE:
: Liquid silicone rubber molding eliminates the milling, preforming and deflashing operations of compression molding, achieving significant savings in labor, capital equipment, inventory and floor space.
The injection molding process is 20 to 40 times faster than compression molding, which translates into lower part cost and the ability to produce more parts with fewer mold cavities. Liquid silicone molding is the most efficient process for molding of silicone rubber parts developed to date. It is a process which adapts the basic principles of injection of plastics to the processing of thermoset elastomers.
In many applications, the liquid injection molding process can replace traditional compression molding processes usually associated with the molding of both organic and silicone rubber. The result is higher precision and quality, and more complex parts can be produced at greater efficiency levels.
: Liquid injection molding is a one-step automatic process which eliminates human error and process variances, assuring precise dimensional tolerances of finished parts.
It is a totally enclosed system, eliminating the possibility of material contamination and airborne particles.
With the deflashing step eliminated, parts have precise molded edges rather than die cut edges necessary with most compression molded parts. Gating can be located in areas less critical for appearance.
GREATER DESIGN FLEXIBILITY
: Complex parts are possible with liquid silicone rubber because the material flows easily in thin sections. A camera bellows developed and produced by LSM Labs for Eastman Kodak has a wall thickness of 29 thousandths and a flow distance of four inches. No other material was able to fill the part. Very delicate wires can be encapsulated without concern of being broken when the material is injected into the mold.
