“These exciting new silicone elastomer products continue our rich, blended 70-year heritage of innovation, market firsts and deep expertise”
Momentive’s versatile Silplus elastomer line, offered in a range of hardness, consists of three platforms, each developed to meet the specialized needs of different potential applications:
The StatSil platform of antimicrobial HCR and LSR products is a family of addition curable, high consistency rubber (HCR) and liquid silicone rubber (LSR) products that can be considered for use in a number of healthcare applications for built-in protection from microbial growth in or on the human body.
Momentive’s platinum-catalyzed LSR7000 series was originally introduced for potential use in specialty electronics applications, including light guides or optical lenses. Its high optical transparency and excellent physical stability make it also an excellent material to consider for consumer, automotive and healthcare applications, such as diving masks, sensor systems, endoscopic devices, catheters, and respiratory components.
“These exciting new silicone elastomer products continue our rich, blended 70-year heritage of innovation, market firsts and deep expertise,” said Holger Albrecht, Global Marketing Director of Elastomers, Momentive. “The new Silplus line gives us one truly global platform, enhancing strategic and performance advantages for our customers, while the StatSil platform can help reduce critical risks and costs across the global healthcare system.”
Momentive also featured its enhanced custom elastomer service, which can meet a customer’s precise specification of each silicone rubber compound they require within a short lead-time, eliminating the need to compromise when designing elastomeric components.
Momentive has a long history of developing hardcoat solutions for polymeric materials, enabling their continuous use in exterior applications such as automotive and architecture. Momentive’s hardcoats can help provide superior abrasion resistance, long-term UV protection, and excellent chemical and solvent resistance. The portfolio includes a range of thermal and UV cured products for a multitude of potential application needs.
