Expert in Silicone Formulation

With expertise in silicone formulation and transformation, we have more than 500 predesigned formulations for your selections.

Similarly, our capability in developing new ones enable us to quickly produce silicone compounds with excellent seal properties such as hardness, compression set to suit your application

Expert in Silicone Material

Silicone is a synthetic polymer, which is composed of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and silicon. This elastomer shows viscoelasticity – it has both viscous and elastic properties. Silicon comes from silica which is found in sand. Silicone materials are widely adopted in various applications.

At our plant, we transform silicone into seals using a High Temperature Vulcanize Rubber (HTV) curing process. During the process, we use platinum or peroxide as a catalyst to transform High Consistency Rubber (HCR), or Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR), and other sub-materials into high quality seals.
