Webinar Recording: Third-Stream Additives that Modify LSR and HCR
April 1, 2021
In this recording, Rick Ziebell, RDAbbott’s Technical Fellow and Vice President of Technology, introduces revolutionary NovaSperse® Third-Stream Modifier technologies from NovationSi that are breaking new ground for modifying liquid silicone rubber (LSR) properties during the liquid injection molding (LIM) process, as well as enhancing high consistency rubber (HCR) using other fabrication processes.
As the presentation describes, third streams are typically used for colorants, but they can also introduce additives that change the functional properties of cured articles. RDAbbott, a leader in materials science, and NovationSi, a premiere supplier of color dispersions, are advancing numerous LSR molding application potentials with these developing modifier technologies.
These additives can also enhance HCR (silicone gum stocks) using other fabrication processes. To demonstrate this potential, Rick will introduces a case study of a novel low-impedance silicone rubber materials, which incorporate patent-pending nanotechnologies, and have recently received FDA clearance for use in non-invasive neuromodulation therapy.
