silicone manufacturing


A dependable and reasonably priced manufacturing method for creating high-quality parts out of a variety of silicone materials is silicone injection molding. Faster cycle times, more design freedom, better part quality, and environmental sustainability due to minimal waste production during part manufacture are just a few benefits of this process.


Two substances are combined in the thermosetting process of liquid silicone rubber, or LSR injection molding. To create a completed piece, this two-component material is heat-treated using a mold conductor and mold. One can obtain liquid silicone molding materials from Part A and Part B components. Usually, these ingredients are combined one to one, and pigment is added at the blending stage prior to treatment.

Once the silicone material has been melted, it is injected into a mold that has already been created. More specifically, material is moved through a heated barrel and into a mold cavity using a mechanical injection unit. The cure process of liquid silicone shot molding is accelerated by high temperature and molding pressures.


Reproductions are consistently accurate because the material adopts the shape of the mold as it cools and solidifies. Final touches can be added through additional refining steps like machining and polishing once the molded object is completed, removing any excess material.


With its tight tolerances and clean, consistent results, silicone injection molding provides an alternative to more labor-intensive techniques like compression or transfer molding.

The cycle time is a key advantage of liquid silicone rubber over molding silicone materials based on gum. The welding cycle time for liquid silicone parts varies from 30 to 3 minutes, depending on the stimulus and the cross-section of the part to be welded; the hardening time usually ranges from 25 to 50 seconds.

On the other hand, gum base silicones may extract after three to five minutes of full cycle time in a conventional silicone mold. A single or two-tooth cavity injection mold will therefore yield more results than a multi-cavity mold. Tooling costs and lead times are reduced along with component costs when fewer cavities are needed to keep manufacturing.


    Products ranging from consumer goods to medical devices are created via silicone injection molding. Typical uses for silicone injection molding consist of the following:

• Medical implants and devices

Because silicone is biocompatible and resistant to chemicals and high temperatures, it is frequently used to make medical implants and devices like catheters, pacemaker casings, and prosthetics.

• Consumer electronics

Many consumer electronics products, such as mobile phone cases and smartwatch bands, are made using silicone injection molding due to its durability and flexibility.

• Automotive components

Silicone injection molding is used to create various automotive components such as gaskets, seals, and weatherstripping due to its ability to withstand high temperatures and harsh environments.

• Household items

Silicone injection molding is also used to make a variety of household items such as kitchen utensils, bakeware, and baby products due to its non-stick properties, easy-to-clean surface, and resistance to high temperatures.


The primary ingredients of silicone rubber are silicon dioxide and sand. Methyl chloride reacts with this refined sand to produce pure metallic silicon. After that, it’s added to produce a range of silicones, including gum bases, liquids, polymers, and substances. Unlike other plastics, silicon has properties that include healing due to the distinctive carbon structure that includes silicon atoms and organic side chains.

High-purity platinum silicone rubber comes in liquid form and is suitable for a variety of uses due to its exceptional characteristics. These include low compression ratio, high stability, affordability, and excellent elasticity.

Since Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) is a transparent thermosetting organ material that is non-toxic, heat-resistant, and extremely resilient. Its low viscosity, quick curing, shear thinning, and high thermal expansion coefficient are the main features that affect how sulfur transforms it. For silicone injection molding, two-component liquid silicone rubber that is strong, transparent, and resistant to tearing is suitable.

Compounds are blended with liquid silicone molds at room temperature and pumped straight into the heated mold. Tool designs with thin, random patterns, close distances, and thick/thin features flow similarly as streams of liquid silicone rubber. To help remove finished material from tooling, tilt angles are not necessary, nor do tooling surfaces need to be extremely complex. Since the silicone has been entirely prepared, the shaped silicone gasket can be removed at the conclusion of the repair cycle without rupturing or deforming.
