Applied Silicone introduced Ultra-Soft LSR (Liquid Silicone Rubber) products for the implantable materials market. Ultra-Soft LSR is formulated specifically for long-term implantation in the human body (>30 days) and provides a very soft liquid silicone rubber measured in Type OO and Type OOO durometer scales.
Soft silicone elastomers have historically been ideal candidates for soft tissue simulation, cushioning, and dampening, but were limited to non-reinforced gel systems that are prone to fracture and require a thin elastomer membrane to enhance integrity. Applied Silicone’s Type OO and Type OOO Soft LSR’s possess both a soft feel and greater mechanical strength with minimal surface tackiness. Soft LSR’s have low to medium viscosities suitable for knife-coating films, injection molding soft parts with complex geometries, or solvent less dip-casting of thin membranes.
