Making Medical Device Designs with Silicone Elastomer

Finely tuned formulations are nowhere more important than in healthcare & medical device applications. From ease of processability in manufacturing to enhanced comfort when in contact with the human body, Momentive silicones can meet the demands of the healthcare & medical device industry. Momentive’s family of liquid silicone rubber materials (LSR) enables healthcare device designers and equipment manufacturers to introduce improved material features for critical applications such as needle-free access valves, respiratory masks, seals and assembled parts.

Momentive´s SiloprenTM LSR 4655 SL can provide enhanced lubricity for specialized applications requiring a high-slip surface not achievable via traditional silicone molded parts. Silopren LSR 4749 can be considered for manufacturing articles where plastics and elastomers need to be chemically combined in an over-molding or insert-molding process.

This 60-minute Webinar examines the challenges of medical device manufacturers and demonstrates enabling solutions.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
