Elastosil® C 150 silicone rubber is said to be a faster, better, quicker, and simpler solution for composite part production in infusion molding and prepreg applications. Compared to open resin applications, the rubber is said to offer environmental advantages through the controlled release of styrene. The silicone rubber can reportedly save up to 70 percent of the material cost and time required compared with conventional foil/sealing tape technology. According to the company, because of its unique properties, molds made with the rubber have exceptional durability for repeat use compared with systems having limited or single-use capability.
