Goodway has expanded the ability to Liquid silicone molding

Goodway has been doing compression silicone for a while, and this time it is taking a new challenge to go for the liquid silicone molding. Liquid silicone rubber is a high purity platinum-cure silicone.
Medical device manufacturers favour liquid silicone because of its biocompatibility and excellent part quality. Medical grade silicone combined with a lack of human contact reduces risk of contamination, especially when manufactured in a clean room environment. However, failures of medical implants have occurred due to poor manufacture or poor design.

It is typically supplied in two parts with one of the parts containing the platinum catalyst. These are then automatically mixed with any colours and ingredients which may be required. The mixing produces a very homogeneous material that leads to products that are not only very consistent throughout the part, but also from part to part.
