XIAMETER® Brand Adds LSR Series to Speed Productivity
Product News Apr 06, 2012
To help rubber product fabricators shorten overall processing cycles and optimize manufacturing performance, the XIAMETER® brand of Dow Corning has introduced XIAMETER® RBL-9200 Liquid Silicone Rubber, a series of low-viscosity products that can flow at lower pressures into intricate tool cavities and may reduce the need for processing adjustments at the molding machine.
“We have a history of producing high-quality LSR products, which customers are choosing for more and more applications because of their versatility," said Ivan Mini, rubber global product market manager for the XIAMETER® brand.
Mini continued, “With XIAMETER RBL-9200 LSR series, our goal is to deliver faster and more consistent processability among different batches from the same manufacturing equipment.”
Possible applications for XIAMETER RBL-9200 LSR series include electrical insulation, keypads, grommets, gaskets and seals.
Because it is suitable for food contact, it can also be used for spatulas and pot holders, as well as potentially an alternative to latex in baby-bottle nipples and pacifiers (extractable testing pending).
“In the global LSR market, customers who are looking for value need high-quality products from a supplier dedicated to cost optimization, which is what the web-enabled XIAMETER® business model is all about,” said Mini.
Separate downloadable PDF product selector guides featuring XIAMETER RBL-9200 LSR series are available to customers in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Japan specifically.
XIAMETER brand standard silicone rubbers are available to customers directly via www.xiameter.com or through a local distributor.
