Bluestar Silicones Presents Elastomer Solutions At Medical Design And Manufacturing (MD&M) East Show

PHILADELPHIA, June 13, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —  Bluestar Silicones will showcase its new Silbione® silicone elastomer solutions, including low durometer liquid silicone rubber (LSR) and self-bleeding LSR, at the upcoming Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East Conference (Booth #3744), June 18-20.  

Bluestar Silicones' new 1 Shore A (ShA) hardness product, Silbione LSR 4301, uniquely combines strong physical properties and easy processing in a low-durometer material. This product rounds out the company's 5 and 10 ShA soft LSR range, delivering high tear strength and elongation for soft cushioning and vibration dampening applications.

The company also introduces its new Silbione LSR 4755, which creates a lubricious surface on the molded part after vulcanization.  This lubricious material is designed to minimize friction and prevent slit healing in application.  Built into the bulk LSR formulation, the self bleeding lubricity of Silbione LSR 4755 eliminates the need for a secondary coating process to reduce coefficient of friction, reducing costs and improving cycle time for the part manufacturer.

"Bluestar Silicones is excited to present these specialty silicone solutions to the market," according to Karen O'Keefe, market manager, North America.  "The high performance physicals of our low durometer LSRs are unmatched in the industry.  And, our self-bleeding material provides a solution to the inherent non-slip surface of LSRs, improving productivity in automated assembly and part performance in select applications."

These specialty LSR products are manufactured in a clean room environment at Bluestar Silicones' new 226,000-sq-ft facility in York, S.C., and incorporate the distinctive advantages of Bluestar Silicones' standard LSR product line, including easy processing, easy release, and high-performance physical properties.

Bluestar Silicones also offers antimicrobial capability for OEMs and processors, which can be incorporated into its standard silicone products, providing a tailored material solution to meet specific healthcare requirements.

In addition to Bluestar Silicones' full line of LSR, the company offers high consistency rubbers (HCR), room-temperature vulcanized silicones (RTVs), skin adhesive tacky gels, cushioning gels and permanent adhesives for the healthcare market.  For more information, call (866) 474-6342.
