Hollow or full profiles

Silicone profile extrusion : A technique

Silicone profiles are made through the extrusion process. Sterne can manufacture profiles of any shapes, colors, sizes, in a large selection of silicones, production environments, and with standard or tight tolerances. Profiles can be delivered in coils, cut in lengths or vulcanized in rings or frames.

Silicone rubber profiles: Sterne shapes your ideas!
• E profiles silicone rubber
• L profiles
• P profiles
• "mushroom" profiles
• Square based U sections
• U profiles
• D sections
• Lip profiles

• Inflatable shape profiles
• H profiles
• Omega profiles
• Edging silicone profiles
• Key hole sections
• Autoclave profiles
• Cross sections profiles
• Customized extruded rubber profile
And many other complex shape profiles, even technical ones, according to drawings.

Our solid silicone rubbers profiles are available in food grade silicone, metal detectable silicone, fluoro Silicone, platinum cured silicone, peroxide silicone, steam resistant silicone, biomedical silicone rubber... Diverse hardnesses and colors are upon specifications.

Sponge silicone extruded articles are available in diverse densities (250Kg/m3 being the standard), colors (off-white being the standard) always manufactured in an industrial production environment.

Molded items

Custom silicone molded parts : a mastered technique

Sterne molding capabilities include compression and injection molding techniques. Custom silicone rubber parts are made in either High Consistency silicone Rubber or Liquid Silicone Rubber. Simple or complex silicone parts are manufactured using a multitude of technologies using our compression or injection molding machines. Our technical team will determine the right process and design the right mold according to the technical specificities (size, quantity, target cost, expected performances and tolerances, ...)

Standard tolerances respect ISO 3302-1 norm category M2, but tighter tolerances are also possible.

A large choice of silicone compound is available.

Sterne can produce prototype, unique piece, small, medium or mass series thanks to its host of machines.

Our R&D team offers technical assistance form the early stage of your silicone project to the design & final conception of the products.

Molded silicone parts: Sterne shapes your ideas!
• Dental tray
• Oxygen mask
• Non standard O-ring
• Suction cup
• Washer silicone gaskets
• Silicone sterilization mats

• Over molded inserts
• Silicone gate seals
• Silicone balls
• Molded plates 

And other precision molded parts according to customers’ drawings

Clean rooms

Medical grade elastomers manufacturing solution

Integrated cleanroom production : Definition
Cleanrooms are designed to efficiently control air quality and reduce contamination. Cleanrooms serve the medical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and surgical markets, to answer high expectations due to increasingly demanding new legislations, and requirements.

Sterne Certified Cleanroom : Our Facilities & commitments
Our 650 m2 cleanroom are devoted to produce seals and other silicone parts for medical applications. Sterne operates into 3 separated areas: 400 m2 ISO 6 cleanroom ( used to be Class 1000) and 250 m2 ISO 8 cleanroom (used to be Class 100-000)

These ultra-protected production areas have regulated access and receive regular particulate and bacteriological controls to offer the highest grade silicone rubber products.

Sterne processing: An added value manufacturing
Sterne only process platinum cured silicone of different medical grades in its cleanrooms, such as short or long term implantable silicones, USP class VI silicone rubber and ISO 10993 compliant materials. These medical grades rubbers associated with a sophisticated production technology enable Sterne to offer high precision & quality silicone products, which can be implanted into the human body.

These protected environment are ideal to manufacture clean silicone customized parts such as:
• short/long term implantable silicone devices
• Silicone eyelets
• Silicone septum
• Silicone medical devices & components
• Silicone drains
• Urology silicone tubes
• Silicone gastric rings, gastric bands
• Silicone rubber catheters
• Syringe silicone components
• Silicone O-rings
• Silicone diaphragms
• Silicone cushions
• Silicone valves
• Silicone probes
• Silicone rubber parts for infusion sets (IV sets)
• Silicone components
• Fluted drain profile in silicone

Manufactured items

Fabricated custom silicone rubber parts : A real expertise

Sterne adds a value to its silicone products thanks to its technical knowledge and unique know-how to develop and manufacture “hand made” silicone parts, in small and mass series. These customized silicone products require appropriate equipment and machines, know-how, technology and well trained and experienced people.

These “hand made” products are realized in solid or sponge silicone rubbers within our extensive inventory of compounds. Sterne customized silicone products including :

• Flat silicone seals cut-out from elastomeric sheets
• Drilling, lengthwise cut-out silicone length
• Manufactured silicone sleeves: conic, cylindrical, squared or rectangular.
• Silicone cords and profiles vulcanized into rings or frames.
• Over molded silicone corners
• Cold bonding: silicone cords or silicone profile bonded into rings or frames
• Inflatable silicone rubber seals
