SILICONE MOLDING

Alex Gianos

silicone properties and uses
Silicone is heat resistant, rubber like, and an inert synthetic compound
  • Doesn’t stick to many sub straights
  • Low toxicity, thermal conductivity, and chemical reactivity
  • Ability to repel water
  • Does not support microbiological growth
  • Good electrical insulation
  • Uses: Sealants, adhesives, lubricants, medical applications, cookware and insulation
Silicone Properties and Uses
types of silicone molding
1) Liquid injection molding(LIM)- most used
  • 2) Transfer molding- custom pieces, premixed and molded, easy for rapid production
  • 3) Insert molding- allows for molding plastics into pre molded objects or metals.
Types of Silicone molding
capabilities
Threading
  • Clips
  • hinges
  • Holes
  • Springs
  • Undercuts
  • Simple
  • Complex
  • Foam
  • Reinforced
  • Filled
  • Flexable
  • Ridged
  • Polished
  • Hotstamped
  • Plated
  • Colored
  • Clear
  • Solid
  • Thick
  • Thin
  • Textured
Capabilities
2 systems
Ejection system- injects the mold at high heat and pressure ( filled through suction or pushed through)
    • Material melts through frictional hear in machine
  • Clamping machine- pushes the parts together and forms the 3dimentional object from the mold
2 Systems
companies
Albright Technologies
  • Vestanic
  • Peterson Molding Enterprises
  • Sil-Pro
  • DarCoid
Companies
endless possibilities
Medical devices are perfect for this because they can be disposed of easily
    • Extremely clean and sanitary
  • Degradable and recycled
  • Surgeries, metal tools with plastic grips,
  • 3 ways of molding allow for intricate or simple pieces.
Endless possibilities
