Innovative Elastomers such as Dow Corning’s recently launched, and evolving Liquid Silicon Rubber (LSR) QP1-2XX range, allow for speed and accuracy during the manufacture of precision and intricate parts of medical devices such as O-rings, stoppers, closures, and short-term implants; whilst ensuring compliance to current and future regulatory needs. This enables Medical Device companies to create competitive advantage and value in their specific market sectors.

In this webinar we’ll expand on improvements in processing and performance properties which save you time and money through high batch-to-batch consistency in Injection Molding Machines (IMM) with less changeover and downtime.

The presentation will also include a customer case study, comparison of LSR QP1-2XX performance benefits vs. competitive products, and the benefits of having a state of art Clean Room IMM customer training facility.
