Our products

Product category: Injection molding, Extrusion, Plastics, Other raw materials, materials, adhesives

(Bio)Pharmaceutical Production, Clinical, Diagnostics and Labware

We created our line of durable, highly resilient silicones to be flexible and transparent to withstand multiple sterilization cycles. At Momentive, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of silicone products that are ISO 10993 and/or USP Class VI compliant, without the addition of plasticizers or other organic additives. Our line of Silopren* liquid silicone rubbers for healthcare (LSRs) will typically cure rapidly by heating in standard injection molding equipment. Our Tufel* Series is an excellent candidate for applications where transparency and high resilience are required.

Respiratory and Anesthesia

Masks and devices used to delivery respiratory care and anesthesia to patients need to be durable, able to withstand multiple cleaning cycles, but still be comfortable against the patient’s skin. Silicone’s thermal stability and high tear resistance can help make this possible. Our highly versatile Silopren LSR liquid silicone rubber has good rubber-like properties and high tear resistance, which can lead to long service life at dynamic stress. Our Tufel* Series offers fast cure speeds for high production output rates, and high tear strength coupled with a tight surface cure, making it an excellent silicone for medical tubing and hoses.

Surgical Devices and Sterilization

Soft-touch grip used on surgical and dental instruments, and mats and brackets used to hold instruments during sterilization processes, all need to be durable enough to withstand multiple sterilization cycles. Silicones for surgical devices have high thermal and chemical stability, which can help make this possible. Our Tufel* Series is an excellent candidate for applications where transparency and complex molding flexibility is required, and can easily be pigmented to achieve a variety of color effects. Our line of Silopren* liquid silicone rubbers (LSRs) will typically cure rapidly by heating in standard injection molding equipment, and our self-bonding LSRs can be overmolded onto a variety of engineered thermoplastic and metal substrates often without the use of primers or secondary processes. Momentive’s ultra-clear liquid silicone rubbers for surgical devices can provide glass like transparency coupled with elastomeric functionality in light guides and endoscopic device components.
