Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) and High Consistency Rubber (HCR) offer a range of benefits in medical devices. Silicone rubber is compatible with human tissue and body fluids. Silicones offer excellent stability under heat and will keep their shape, clarity, and flexibility even after repeated sterilization.
The Trinks Inc. Micro-Molder was designed specifically for insert molding of small LSR parts. Trinks Inc. transfer presses are used to mold various HCR medical devices.
