LSR – LIQUID SILICONE RUBBER
HTV- HIGH TEMPERATURE VULCANIZING SILICONE RUBBER
Liquid and solid silicone rubbers belong to the family of vulcanisable elastomers.
Vulcanisation is caused by following the principle of addition reticulation and this means that, as opposed to peroxide reticulation, no products of the reticulant get released. Moreover, LSR does not contain any toxic or aggressive components and is therefore perfectly suited for the production of medical or alimentary implants. The manufacture and implementation of LSR products is totally environment-friendly and also saves a great deal of energy. Often waste can be avoided, reducing even further the costs involved in its disposal. The waste is, anyway, quite harmless.
The choice of using LSR or HTV is defined in the initial phase of the projects according to the different characteristics of the product and the related application field.
