Oct. 21, 2005
Date Announced: 21 Oct 2005 NuSil's Lightspan Brand Adds Optically Clear, Injection-Moldable Silicone Elastomer to its Family of Silicone MaterialsCarpinteria, California - NuSil Technology, a cutting-edge manufacturer of silicone-based materials for healthcare, aerospace, electronics and photonics - through its Lightspan brand - announces the addition of an optically clear, injection-moldable silicone elastomer to its lineup of photonics products. LSR-9562-30, a two-part, high-viscosity elastomer, is ideal for use in the injection molding of clear silicone parts. This material may also find uses in potting and encapsulating applications because of its glob-top-like consistency. It is designed to protect electronic components and assemblies against shock, vibration, moisture, dust, chemicals and other environmental hazards. The product has a refractive index of 1.5 and is provided in packaging ranging from 50-milliliter kits to drum kits. "Like all our Lightspan offerings, this product is designed to provide exceptional light transmission and offers our photonics customers another innovative option for their molding, potting and encapsulating needs," said Brian Nash, vice president of Marketing and Sales. "We continually strive to improve the efficiency, quality and scope of our products, and LSR-9562-30 is one of many examples of our dedication."NuSil's Lightspan brand products are specialized fluids, gels, coatings, thermosets and encapsulation materials ideal for refractive index matching. These products encompass a range of materials at different refractive indexes and include products resistant to fuels, solvents and other harsh environments, providing the engineering world with material options when matching a refractive index.For more information on physical properties and packaging for LSR-9562-30, visit About NuSil TechnologyNuSil is a cutting-edge manufacturer of silicone compounds for healthcare, aerospace, electronics, photonics and other applications that require precise, predictable, cost-effective materials performance.
