This company has developed a new silicone technology that uses ultraviolet (UV) light instead of heat to cure rubber and liquid silicone rubber (LSR). The new technology allows for shorter cure times at low temperatures while maintaining the physical properties of a typical silicone rubber.

Marketed under the Silopren™ and Addisil™ trade names, the UV product portfolio ranges from extrusion and molding materials to coatings and gels. The silicone products can lead to new opportunities in a range of applications, such as medical devices that combine silicone rubber with thermally sensitive materials, which include pharmaceutical drugs, electronic parts, and low-temperature thermoplastics that cannot withstand the high temperatures reached during the curing process of traditional silicone materials.
