Dow Corning, Midland, MI, introduces its advanced QP1-2 Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) product line. These five new platinumcatalyzed, heat-cured silicone elastomers offer medical device manufacturers and fabricators enhanced processability, improved shot-to-shot consistency, and faster cure profiles to support high-volume liquid injection molding of small, intricate components.

QP1-2 LSRs offer improved rheology vs. other silicones, enabling them to flow quickly at lower pressures into intricate molds. In addition, batch-to-batch consistency and a fast cure profile typically helps to reduce cycle times by at least 15 percent vs. other silicone materials. QP1-2 LSRs meet all biocompatibility standards for short-term implant, non-implant, surgical suite and consumer healthcare applications, as well as Class 2 medical equipment.

Together, these qualities make Dow Corning’s new, high-performing LSR line ideally suited for the cost-effective, high-volume production of complex medical devices. In addition, the products contain no peroxides, peroxide by-products, chlorophenyls, PCBs, organic plasticizers, phthalates, or latex additives or solvents.
