Dow Shows SILASTIC™ Advantages and Explains How to Use and Choose Silicone Elastomers

Dow SILASTIC™ silicone elastomers are meeting increasingly challenging requirements while supporting environmental sustainability and product innovation. Listed below are some resources to help you understand the features and uses of Dow’s high performing silicones.

SILASTIC™ Silicone Elastomers Video

This YouTube video from Dow explains how SILASTIC™ silicone elastomers are helping to create a more sustainable future while meeting market demand for safety, reliability, and aesthetics. From underwater diving to late-night driving, Dow materials help get you there.

Dow’s SILASTIC™ Silicone Elastomers video also explains how these LSRs are used in mold making, liquid injection molding (LIM), and 3D printing. Whether it’s about saving lives or stopping spills, Dow is ready to deliver innovative technologies and proven materials.

Silicone Rubber and LSR Web Page

SILASTIC™ Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSR) are two-part dispensable silicone materials that are readily mixed and rapidly heat-cured into durable elastomers. As Dow’s landing page explains, these two-part dispensable LSRs combine excellent processing performance with fast cure rates, reduced cycle times, and lower production costs.

Fabrication methods include LIM, coating and sealing, and 3D printing. Dow’s web page also includes links to additional resources about the SILASTIC™ RBL-9200 Series, SILASTIC™ LTC-9400 LSR, and 3D 3335 LSR for additive manufacturing.

LSR Selection Guide

Dow’s LSR Product Selection Guide is a downloadable resource that describes specific SILASTIC™ products for coating, injection molding, and 3D printing. You’ll also find information about moldable optical silicone elastomers and electrical-grade materials.

From general-purpose LSRs to fluoro liquid silicone rubbers (F-LSRs), this selection guide contains tables with typical applications, available products, key features, and product specifications that include cure times, oil content, compression set, and viscosity.
