Shakopee, Minnesota: Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) custom injection molded parts and assemblies provide elasticity in a wide temperature range making this process a good choice for automotive, appliance, and OEM designers. Offered by Rubber Industries, Inc., both clear and custom color LSR parts and molded assemblies are available in small and large quantities.

Rubber Industries LSR has a fast cure and cycle time, making it ideal for custom seals, insulators, diffusers, valves, gaskets, bellows and similar components for both under the hood and appliance designs. The LSR material has low compression set and resists damaging effects of sunlight and ozone for extended wear life on indoor/outdoor applications.

Overmold bonding of LSR material to metal and plastic components is also an important service offered by Rubber Industries. Handles, grips, sleeves, caps and similar components can be ergonomically designed in harmonizing colors and bonded to other metal and plastic parts. Virtually any configuration in unlimited quantities can be injection molded utilizing Rubber Industries vast array of automated presses in a full range of tonnage sizes.

Included in its one-stop LSR injection molding capabilities, Rubber Industries provides complete mold design and manufacture, complete in-house cryogenic de-flashing capabilities, component assembly and packaging.

Of special note is Rubber Industries’ mold design system. This system utilizes a cost-saving series of modular mold components whereby customers need purchase only their part’s mold cavity, not the entire mold assembly.
