New injection-moulding machine

New injection-moulding machine

Silex continues to invest in Silicone-Technology.

With the new Wittmann Battenfeld injection-moulding machine for LSR-processing, Silex has now 7 presses for the automatic production of silicone-moulded articles. The “state-of-the-art” 120 t machine has an injection volume of 240 cm³ and is extremely energy efficient. The company Hess from Düsseldorf unloaded the machine professionally and brought it safely to the final position.

LSR-Silicone-Rubbers are two-component, platinum-crosslinked systems for the fully automatic production of moulded parts. In addition to their excellent mechanical properties, they have the following characteristics in particular:

  • Excellent hot-air resistance
  • Very good low temperature resistance
  • Nearly constant properties over a wide temperature range
  • High tranparency and good colourability (brilliant colours)
  • Physiologically harmless
