Liquid Silicone Rubber is used an a wide variety of applications due to its biocompatibility and durability, while also being temperature and chemical resistant. It is a material extremely useful in medical devices and infant care products but also found in many other specialized industries. Whether you are looking for a short-run production or some R&D for design or failure analysis, PSN has this unique capability in-house.
Developing custom materials for a variety of applications like selective sorbent systems, conductive compounds, highly or uniquely filled materials, or even for specific tribology requirements has historically been a part of PSN’s business model. We have several compounding lines with a variety of downstream processing equipment to meet many common polymer processing needs.
Once your custom material is created, our team can then provide material to your supplier base or potentially mold the final product right in our facility for you.
Our team has a diverse range of experience in processing for your prototyping and manufacturing needs including:
As part of our Processing Lab, we operate a machine center designed to create prototypes, giving you a mock version of your product. This phase of development is important to work out potential issues or failures before reaching the manufacturing floor. This allows you to streamline your production processes, ultimately keeping design costs lower.
With the advances made in polymer engineering over the last several decades, the ability to produce stronger, lighter, more durable, sustainable, and less expensive structural components is advancing greatly. We have extensive knowledge and background in metal to polymer conversions and routinely provide this service to our client base.
