NuSil Technology LLC (http://www.nusil.com), a leading formulator and manufacturer of silicone compounds for the healthcare industry, adds three new products to the VersaSil line, which is now a series of six high-consistency elastomers designed for optimal performance in a wide range of applications.
VersaSil 40, 60 and 80 present new ranges in durometer, offering versatility for extrusion, transfer/compression molding and calendaring. The unique three-part system of VersaSil allows flexibility to adjust the cure rate and the table life to various fabricating requirements.
“This high-consistency elastomer product line was developed for volume-users who demand maximum flexibility,” said Brian Reilly, Product Director – Healthcare Materials. “With these recent durometers added to the series, customers now have more options to match their unique needs.”
Featuring high tear strength; wide processing parameters; and translucent, non-tacky surfaces, the new additions are available in unvulcanized base stock that can be cured through either a peroxide catalyst or platinum-cure masterbatch. The base stock, available in 25- or 1,000-pound kits, produces tough, durable elastomers with nominal Type A durometers of 40, 60 and 80.
A Master Access File and biological testing have been filed with the U.S. FDA. The VersaSil series are restricted products. They shall not be considered for use in human implantation for a period of greater than 29 days.
