Manufacturing methods for silicone articles
Using the extrusion manufacturing process, Siltec manufactures tubes, seals, profiles and cords in various Shore hardnesses and in a wide range of dimensions. Our in-house tool production enables customer-specific profile cross-sections and our technology portfolio enables the implementation of special requirements through coextrusion or the insertion of fabric reinforcements.
Silicone injection moulding
Molded parts, gaskets, O-rings and plates made of LSR or HTV silicone can be produced by injection molding. At Siltec we manufacture individual injection tools and enable the production of a wide range of dimensions and batch sizes through our broad portfolio of injection moulding systems.
The encapsulation process can be used to cast various components with RTV silicones. This process is used, for example, for temperature-sensitive electronic components and in medical technology. Classic silicone products that are manufactured using the encapsulation process are therefore often “intelligent” components with integrated electronics.
Assembly of silicone components
In addition to the standard production processes, Siltec offers the possibility to assemble silicone products according to customer requirements. Silicone parts can be refined, cut to size, expanded and glued to produce, for example, breathing tubes, sealing frames or inflatable seals.
