Bluestar Silicones’ Silbione soft silicone technologies include the following: low durometer liquid silicone rubber (LSR), room temperature vulcanized (RTV) silicones, gels and skin adhesives, and a silicone foam.

The company says its advancements now make possible physical performance attributes such as high tear strength and elongation in low-durometer soft silicones. Bluestar Silicones new 1 Shore A hardness product, Silbione LSR 4301, combines strong physical properties and easy processing in a low-durometer material. The product rounds out Bluestar’s -05 and -10 ShA soft LSR range, delivering high tear strength and high elongation for soft cushioning and vibration dampening applications.

The company’s silicone foam technology offers low-density, open-cell silicone foam for flexible, breathable yet durable applications. This innovation was honored as Frost & Sullivan’s Product Differentiation Award in 2012.
