The Mix Makes the Difference

The simplest things in life are often the most important – how often have you found yourself reaching for the fly swatter? ELASTOSIL® LR 3070/60 A/B and 2K technology are perfectly suited for such a handy and practical tool. This paste-like, readily pigmentable via pigment pastes, two-part rubber compound can be easily processed by fully-automated injection molding and has impressively short curing times. A and B components are mixed in a ratio of 1:1 and thus prepared for the actual processing step. In this short film, we show you exactly how it works:


Advantages of ELASTOSIL®:

  • Highly transparent
  • Hygienic and easy to clean
  • Flame resistant
  • Resistant to mechanical stress
  • No critical substances
  • Easy to process
  • Can be pigmented as desired
  • Low compression set

Benefits of Hard/Soft Combinations:

  • Improved productivity: highly automated, no assembly required
  • More efficient process control: short cycle times, parts require no secondary finishing, considerable process reliability
  • Maximum quality: less risk of damage during production
  • Simplified logistics: one component drawing, one processor, one quality control process, one item number
