Summary

Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSRs) exhibit outstanding material properties at extreme temperatures and are processed fully automatically by injection molding. Therefore, LSRs offer high productivity for the manufacturer. Self-adhesive LSRs as presented here are designed in a way that no mold coating is necessary during the injection molding process, and are ideally suitable where high performance combinations of rigid flexible combinations for technical applications are required. The adhesion properties of a broad range of engineering thermoplastics have been improved and a highly reproducible method for testing the adhesion properties of injection-molded rigid flexible parts is presented.
