DUESSELDORF, Germany—Momentive Performance Materials Inc. will display its Silopren liquid silicone rubbers (LSR) in live demonstrations during K Show 2016, the company has announced.
According to Momentive, the demonstrations will show processing qualities of the elastomer products for injection moulding.
“Momentive has paved the way for wide adoption of LSR technology in the automotive, healthcare and consumer goods industries,” said its news release issued Oct. 6.
In booth B15 in Hall 6, Momentive will feature two-component LSR on LSR molding with Silopren LSR 2670 liquid silicone rubber in cooperation with Elmet and Arburg.
System supplier, Elmet, created a 4+4 cavity mold manufacturing egg-holders and built a fully automated turn-key cell by integrating an Arburg injection molding machine with its own peripheral devices and dosing system.
The installed close-loop controlled color injection at the dosing system is a new feature which will be presented for the first time at K.
The applicability of LSR for multi-component moulding will also be shown in the Arburg booth, A13 in Hall 13, in partnership with Rico Elastomere Projecting.
In this demonstration, the automated manufacturing of a yet undisclosed innovation will be showcased with a hard-soft LSR combination of Silopren LSR 2670 liquid silicone rubber for harder component and an inlay of the softer Silopren LSR 2620 liquid silicone rubber.
