Liquid Silicone Solutions LSR Molded Solutions

Liquid silicone rubber, or LSR, is our core competence. It provides many features not offered by organic rubber which we take advantage of across many markets. It is a versatile material and is commercially available in many grades including:

  • Medical grades
  • Self-lubricating
  • Conductive
  • Self-bonding
  • Radio opaque
  • Fast cure
  • Fluoro Liquid Silicone
  • Rubber (F-LSR)
  • Flame retardant
  • No post-cure (NPC) -low volatile chemistries available
  • Chlorine / chloramine resistant compound

Variety Of Substrates For A Multitude Of Applications

Gulf Rubber US has a broad range of knowledge with molding and overmolding a variety of substrates for a variety of industries, including liquid silicone rubber medical manufacturing, while meeting stringent bond requirements. We have the expertise to design a robust and sustainable process to assure a high confidence in the bond. Go ahead. Challenge us! Liquid silicone rubber (LSR) tooling is comparable in cost and complexity to plastic tooling. We offer both standard hot runner and cold runner tooling with the ability to run fully automatic to drive cost out with quality and sustainability in mind.
