NuSil Launches Next-Generation Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSRs)

Share Article

The new line of Medical Grade Silicones speeds and improves production of long-term Implants by enabling higher yields and faster throughputs. Formulated with a focus on processing parameters, the new LSRs also feature excellent lot-to-lot consistency for highly predictable, highly reliable manufacturing results over time.

NuSil's Implant Line changes lives by supporting Life Saving Devices

NuSil’s 5800 Series of Implantable LSRs, designed to optimize manufacturing efficiency and component quality for lifesaving, life-changing medical devices, is the result of over 20 years of feedback from our customers.

NuSil Technology LLC (http://www.nusil.com) has launched a new line of Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSRs) engineered to optimize manufacturing efficiency and component quality for lifesaving, life-changing medical implants. The new silicones expand NuSil's premium Implant Line of medical grade silicones designed specifically for liquid injection molding of precision components for critical devices that can remain deep inside the human body for any length of time.

NuSil's MED-5800 series of LSRs features both more efficient rheometry, or "cure profiles", and more consistent viscosities. The result is better in-mold performance – minimal scorch, more efficient fills, lower flash, shorter cure times, less waste – that enables fabricators of critical implantable devices to achieve both higher yields and faster throughputs. Formulated with a focus on processing parameters, the new LSRs also feature excellent lot-to-lot consistency for highly predictable, highly reliable manufacturing results over time.

"Our relationships with our customers – and potential customers – are really central to how we do business here," says Brian T. Reilly, NuSil's Marketing and Sales Director, Medical Implants, "This new product line is the result of over 20 years of invaluable feedback from OEMs, fabricators, equipment manufacturers and toolmakers who have a vision for what is possible if someone is willing to listen to and partner with them. It's been a really gratifying development process, and I look forward to seeing the efficiencies they realize from using these new LSRs."

Available in a full range of durometers, the silicones are backed as are all of NuSil's products by NuSil Care, an industry-leading combination of high-touch customer service, design and development support, and regulatory expertise.
