Multiple live demonstrations of Silopren* liquid silicone rubber at Fakuma 2015

Waterford, N.Y. (September 8, 2015) – Momentive Performance Materials Inc. (Momentive) will feature Silopren liquid silicone rubber (LSR) in a variety of live demonstrations in collaboration with industry partners at Fakuma 2015 taking place October 13-17 in Friedrichshafen / Germany. These demonstrations will showcase the processing qualities and benefits of Momentive’s elastomer products for injection molding.

The excellent consistency and processability of Silopren LSR 2670 will be presented via a designer article application from CVA Silicone at Momentive’s own booth A4 4307. The demonstration will be conducted on an electrical e-mac 100 injection molding machine with integrated e-pic handling supplied by Engel. The new servo-electric e-Flow 20 dosing pump of 2KM has the option to regulate the mixed material pressure. The intricate geometry of the part with a volume of approximately 70 cm³ needs highly precise flow and cure properties of the material to ensure a stabile injection molding process. This process demonstrates that Momentive’s Silopren LSR can be used for even most complex manufacturing challenges. The molded part, dubbed Ursula as a tribute to the James Bond girl, is a protective carrier for bottles and has received an award at the Biennale du Design Français.
