Silicon Rubber Molding
Prototyping, Small Batch, and Low-Volume Production
Liquid silicone rubber (LSR) is used for countless applications worldwide. Silicone rubber can be used safely in electrical, chemical, and extreme conditions. Gaskets, valves, and parts can all be manufactured using liquid silicone rubber.
Silicone rubber has nearly limitless uses across nearly every industry. Silicone rubber can be made in both small and large quantities, and are available in many different colors.
Producing Parts Using Silicone Molds
A 3D Printed or CNC Master pattern is created, then silicone rubber is poured around the master to create a rubber mold. The rubber mold is then used to make copies of the master pattern in a plastic resin the emulates Injection Molded plastics. Each mold is good for 15 to 25 parts. Each part can be cast in color with texture.
In virtually any color, silicone castings can be made to produce identical units in the dozens up to the hundreds, saving money over metal options.
For parts in high quantity, LSR is the production solution. A single metal mold can produce thousands of identical rubber parts in nearly any color imaginable. Low-volume silicone rubber manufacturing is fast, efficient, and extremely competitive in pricing.
The Liquid Silicone Molding (LSR) Process
Liquid silicone molding is a fast and reliable processor for small-batch and low-volume manufacturing of identical silicone casts. Parts made with silicone rubber are identical, resilient, lightweight, and reliable.
Every product starts with a design. Send your CAD file directly to us, or provide your master part model from which the mold will be created. Once your specifications are complete, the design is sent for production.
Molds are created in-house, saving costs and time. Using our CNC machine shop, master models are created and prepared before being used for the molding process.
Silicone Part Casting
Chilled rubber is injected into a heated mold, then cured. The result is a rubberized realization of your design which will not melt or warp when subjected to heat. Whether your order is for a single prototype or in the thousands, all units are thoroughly inspected for quality and capability before leaving our factory.
