Silicone Rubber And Polyurethane Foam Moulding
Where good thermal performance is required from an elastomer, IMIRP offers a variety of methods for moulding silicone rubber components in shore hardness up to 70A. Silicone rubber parts can withstand temperatures in excess of 200 deg C, as well as having good inherent fire retardance. This makes it an ideal material in certain under bonnet applications or for steering and suspension parts that are likely to be subject to high flash braking temperatures.
Self-skinning polyurethane foam mouldings can be supplied in a variety of different densities. This can range from a soft, cushion like consistency such as that found in padding and seating applications, through to lightweight, rigid structural parts. Moulds can be fabricated quickly and easily from either master patterns or CAD data.
