Silicone Dipping


Dipping is a specialized process where a form is immersed into silicone and then withdrawn. This results in the thin film being cured. Dip coating is a process where the thin silicone film remains on the object. Other dip coating applications involve encapsulation and potting.
Advantages to dipping include thin cross sections, large aspect ratios, thin films, low tooling costs and quick turn prototypes.
Dipping can be divided into:
Shell dipping
• Balloons
• Thin walled reservoirs
• Breast envelopes
• Dip coated blades and needles
• Encapsulation
• Potting
