Silicone Masterbatch as an Alternative to Liquid Silicone Rubber

*This video has Spanish subtitles available!*

At SACO AEI Distribution, we have been looking to provide a more cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional liquid silicone rubber (LSR).  We have learned that silicone masterbatches serve as a better solution than LSR.

Liquid Silicone vs. Silicone Masterbatches

Liquid Silicone:

  • LSRs are difficult to handle versus solid pellets.
  • They require pumps and metering.
  • Issues with dosing accuracy.

Silicone Masterbatches:

  • Environmentally friendly.
  • No spillage or waste.
  • Cleaner between runs.

Liquid Silicone vs. Silicone Masterbatches Cont.

Liquid Silicone: 

  • Silicone rubbers are controlled by a few suppliers around the world.
    • Elkem
    • SIMTEC
    • Wacker
    • Dow Corning

Silicone Masterbatches:

  • Silicone masterbatches are made by suppliers in the US and internationally.
  • Readily available.
  • Pricing is better than from overseas.
  • No shortages like LSR.
