Product design Criteria: Elastomers

HideShow resource information
Explain the molecules of elastomers, and elastomer material properties
long-chain molecules considered to be coils. When material is compressed or stretched molecules distort, when release back to original shape.

2 of 5
What process is used to make Liquid silicon rubber (LSR) products
Modified version of injection moulding
3 of 5
What are the advantages of Liquid silicon rubber (LSR) material?
maintain insulating and elastomeric characteristics over a wide temp range -50 to 250+
