The K-Tech division of Pöppelmann has developed sealing solutions, using innovative 2C LSR technology. Using an injection moulding process for two-component liquid silicone rubber (LSR), Pöppelmann offers an optimal solution for manufacturing workpieces to meet stringent sealing and temperature requirements. The thermoplastic is moulded first, and then the LSR is injected on top. This 2C LSR technology makes it possible to reliably overmould different materials in a single, fully automated production process. Depending on the combination of materials, the can be chemically bonded, in addition to achieving the sealant effect.
LSR is odour-free and boasts a series of properties, results in compression set testing while also ensuring resistance to weathering, aging and UV rays and thus providing a dependable seal with high tolerances. The ability of 2C LSR technology to produce solutions that reliably safeguard against moisture, chemicals and high and low temperatures is interesting for the automobile industry. The process is also well-suited to the electronics, electrical, energy, household goods, transportation, medical and cosmetics sectors – and indeed many more besides.
