At the COMPAMED medical-technology trade fair late last year, WACKER, the Munich-based chemical group, is showcasing a new self-adhesive liquid silicone rubber (LSR) that has a low coefficient of friction. SILPURAN® 6760/50 cures to form an elastomer with a low-friction surface, a property which enables self-adhesive LSRs to be used in novel applications. The silicone adheres readily to selected polyesters such as polybutylene terephthalate (PBT). SILPURAN® 6760/50 has been designed for injection molding, making hard/soft components for medical and pharmaceutical applications suitable for cost-effective large-scale production.
