SILPURAN® 6600 Low-Friction-Coefficient Liquid Silicone Rubber Series

During CMEF & ICMD 2016, WACKER will also present SILPURAN® 6600, a two-component liquid silicone rubber. Shore A hardness ranges from 40 to 60. The paste-like product has a short curing time, shows a low coefficient of friction and offers a pleasant hand-touch. Easy to remove from mould after injection, SILPURAN® 6600 helps to reduce product waste and to enhance productivity. It is thus particularly suitable for the economical production of large series of injection-moulded articles. Moreover, via improvement on molecule structure, SILPURAN® 6600 does not contain any migratory low-molecule silicone fluid. It complies with safety standards of the German agency for risk assessment (BfR) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
