Published on 2016-09-09. Author : SpecialChem

LSR for Medical Implant
CARPINTERIA, California -- NuSil Technology LLC has launched a new line of liquid silicone rubbers (LSRs) engineered to optimize manufacturing efficiency and component quality for lifesaving, life-changing medical implants.

LSR for Critical Devices

The new silicones expand NuSil's premium Implant Line of medical grade silicones designed specifically for liquid injection molding of precision components for critical devices that can remain deep inside the human body for any length of time.

Features of New Liquid Silicone Rubber

NuSil's new LSRs, the MED-5800 series, feature:
  • More efficient rheometry, or "cure profiles", and more consistent viscosities. 
  • Better in-mold performance – minimal scorch, more efficient fills, lower flash, shorter cure times, less waste.
  • Higher yields and faster throughputs to fabricators of critical implantable devices.
  • Enahnced processing parameters - excellent lot-to-lot consistency for highly predictable, highly reliable manufacturing results over time.

Brian T. Reilly, NuSil's Marketing and Sales Director, Medical Implants, said:
"Our relationships with our customers – and potential customers – are really central to how we do business here. This new product line is the result of over 20 years of invaluable feedback from OEMs, fabricators, equipment manufacturers and toolmakers who have a vision for what is possible if someone is willing to listen to and partner with them. It's been a really gratifying development process, and I look forward to seeing the efficiencies they realize from using these new LSRs."

Available in a full range of durometers, the silicones are backed as all of NuSil's products by NuSil Care, an industry-leading combination of high-touch customer service, design and development support, and regulatory expertise.
