R.D. Abbott presents an innovative Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) third-stream technology with a customized approach. Typically, these streams are used to add colorants to the LSR and NovationSi is a key supplier of color dispersions for that purpose. Considering that LSR pumping systems have advanced in delivery accuracy of third-, fourth-, and even fifth-stream additive injection, there are opportunities to customize LSR properties in-situ of the Liquid Injection Molding (LIM) process. These additives also enhance HCR (gum stocks) for other fabrication processes.
RDAbbott’s model of APPLIED CURIOSITY for superior technical service, and NovationSi’ customized approach to third-stream and additive technologies, can unlock the potential of LSR or HCR in ways you may not have known. As one example, NovaSperse™ Antistatic additives stop static-cling between cured parts and to other surfaces and also provide a “silky feel”. The additive permanently defeats the triboelectric effect and is helpful in demolding and automatic assembly. In another example, NovaSperse™ Antimicrobial additives can minimize the spread of certain diseases, including Sars-Cov-2 virus. Then we would like to feature a new patented (pending), ground breaking technology in nano-technology additives in silicones that bring non-invasive, neuromodulation therapies to medical use and cleared by the FDA.
