Low density liquid silicone enhances recycling

A lightweight liquid silicone rubber (LSR) for food contact and other consumer applications demonstrates lower viscosity, higher resilience and sustains gravity separation recycling operations, according to Dow.

Dow announced the general availability of its first low density LSR for injection molding as part of its Silastic line, and the LSR is initially available to brand owners and formulators in Europe and North America. The material’s properties make it a favorable option, particularly for food dosing valves, closures, dispensers, seals, gaskets and other food contact applications.
