SHIN-ETSU SILICONES: Liquid Injection Molding System

June 26, 2012

Shin-Etsu Silicones of America, a U.S. subsidiary of Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd. of Japan, recently premiered advanced technical demonstrations with industry-leading equipment partners at NPE 2012, which took place April 2-5 in Orlando, FL. The company demonstrated its KEG-2000 LIMS’s (liquid injection molding system) advanced handling and molding properties, running it with a variety of integrated LIMS machinery and equipment.

The KEG-2000 series is supplied in two components that are mixed in a 1:1 ratio to ensure easy and accurate blending with optimized physical and processing properties. Offering “dynamic viscosity,” the equipment can exhibit higher viscosity under low shear stress (pumping and shut-off) and lower viscosity under high shear stress (injection). Customers can benefit from faster mold filling and minimal flash.
