Liquid silicone rubber is silicone elastomer available in different grades such as industrial, food and medical. Liquid silicone rubber (LSR) possess unique properties such as chemical inertness, electrical resistance, high thermal stability and temperature resistance among others. Due to superior properties, LSR are used in various applications such as medical devices, automotive and electrical goods.
The medical grade is the most widely used grade in the global liquid silicone rubber market. High dielectric strength, bacterial resistance, and temperature resistance makes LSR an ideal choice for manufacturing medical devices, accessories and fittings in the healthcare industry. Moreover, growing stern regulations and compliances of many specification for use in medical products are further projected to drive the overall market growth. In addition, replacement of latex with LSR in impactable devices are providing new opportunities to market players.
