WACKER, the Munich-based chemical group, is presenting a new generation of highly transparent liquid silicone rubbers for lighting technologies at the 20th International Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber K 2016. LUMISIL® LR 7601 makes it possible to produce crystal-clear optical lenses and coupling elements for high heat and light exposure. The product is predominantly characterized by a significantly lower volatile content, which especially benefits processors. The vulcanizates only need to be thermally postcured for sensitive applications. Due to the low volatile content the postcuring time can be reduced for these applications, and the molded part suffers significantly less shrinkage. LUMISIL® LR 7601 is suitable for lenses, sensors and optical coupling elements in lighting technologies and can be processed cost effectively in large-scale injection molding processes.
