Dow Corning Corp. has reformulated its Silastic 9280-70 liquid silicone rubber to provide improved heat resistance and faster molding, the firm said. The new rubber cures to form a 70-durometer elastomer in about five minutes at 150°C. As molded, the compound shows a 35-percent improvement in compression set resistance and a 16-percent gain in elongation over its previous formulation, Dow said.
