Self-adhesive liquid silicone rubbers (LSR) that bond to many plastics and metals without a primer or physical pretreatment are particularly advantageous for medical products. This flexibility means they can be used for multi-functional parts, such as hard-soft combinations, and membrane components.
This 30-minute Webinar examines a new LSR that now adheres to polycarbonate without surface treatment or a mechanical bond. This BPA-free LSR offers LIM processing advantages. It will be available in a wide range of Shore A hardness (20-70) and will be Healthcare compliant.
An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
