1 { SILICONE MOLDING Alex Gianos

2  Silicone is heat resistant, rubber like, and an inert synthetic compound  Doesn’t stick to many sub straights  Low toxicity, thermal conductivity, and chemical reactivity  Ability to repel water  Does not support microbiological growth  Good electrical insulation  Uses: Sealants, adhesives, lubricants, medical applications, cookware and insulation Silicone Properties and Uses

3  1) Liquid injection molding(LIM)- most used  2) Transfer molding- custom pieces, premixed and molded, easy for rapid production  3) Insert molding- allows for molding plastics into pre molded objects or metals. Types of Silicone molding

4 examples

5  Threading  Clips  hinges  Holes  Springs  Undercuts  Simple  Complex  Foam  Reinforced  Filled  Flexable  Ridged  Polished  Hotstamped  Plated  Colored  Clear  Solid  Thick  Thin  Textured Capabilities

6  Ejection system- injects the mold at high heat and pressure ( filled through suction or pushed through)  Material melts through frictional hear in machine  Clamping machine- pushes the parts together and forms the 3dimentional object from the mold 2 Systems

7  Albright Technologies  Vestanic  Peterson Molding Enterprises  Sil-Pro  DarCoid Companies

8  Medical devices are perfect for this because they can be disposed of easily  Extremely clean and sanitary  Degradable and recycled  Surgeries, metal tools with plastic grips,  3 ways of molding allow for intricate or simple pieces. Endless possibilities
