Products made by ASYTEC in its factory in China can be equipped with flexible silicone parts. Silicone parts are generally made by compression or extrusion.
With the silicone compression method we can obtain value orientated (high quality with low cost) flexible parts. Silicone compression tooling are generally simple and inexpensive. The flexibility of the material allows easy removal from the molds and no undercut areas.
The use of silicone is particularly suitable in many demanding applications. It is used to make silicone parts for the medical sector, industry or food contact. One can thus obtain joints, brackets or baking molds.
The silicone materials
The characteristics of the silicone material are very large. First of all, silicone withstands a wide temperature range (up to 300°C) allowing the sterilization process or food cooking. It is suitable for direct food contact and ensures good stability over time in solvents.
