It is safe to assume that the market for high-quality, long-lasting consumer goods used in households has never been greater. Food-grade silicone provides the strength, purity, and reusability required for goods used in food preparation and storage such as infant bottles, reusable beverage bottles, food storage containers, bakeware, and cookware. Food-grade silicone rubber can also tolerate high hot and cold temperatures, which explains why it is widely used in gas and electric appliances, including ovens, stoves, dishwashers, hot water heaters, refrigerators, freezers, and other kitchen and household devices.
Liquid silicone rubber (LSR)'s odorless and tasteless qualities mix perfectly with its natural mold and bacterium resistance to form a safety screen against undesired pollutants. Because of its hydrophobic nature and ease of washing, LSR provides a layer of protection that protects the integrity of your food-related items.
GC employs a wide range of high-quality, food-grade elastomers. To assure an ongoing supply of high-quality certified materials, we obtain materials from our long-standing network of suppliers, which includes the world's leading material producers. Our seasoned professionals will deliver a solution adapted to your unique needs after a full examination of your project's timetables and financial targets, as well as a grasp of your product specifications and performance requirements.
Injection Molding Parts for Food and Beverage Products
GC provides choices for making your high-volume food and beverage items, in addition to a wide selection of liquid silicone rubber materials:
LSR injection molding cells are completely automated and highly calibrated to manufacture high-precision products with excellent consistency and speed. From prototype to high-volume manufacturing, the injection molding process is scalable. LSR-molded components have no flash and few gate indicators. GC can assist you in optimizing product quality, reducing time to market, and providing a value-added solution to keep your budget in check.
Two-Shot and Multi-Shot Injection Molding: For components that require a variety of qualities, such as stiff and flexible physical properties, an LSR 2-Shot or LSR Multi-Shot injection molding process provides these additional design options. It is necessary to employ special, self-adhesive food-grade liquid silicone rubber materials that will link with thermoplastic materials without the use of primers. The LSR and plastic components are molded and bonded together inside the same molding process with this co-injection method to generate an integrated, multi-material component with a superior bond. This innovative molding technology adds value to the design by lowering the number of components and removing the requirement for secondary assembly processes.
GC's injection molding and multi-shot molding solutions may add value and streamline post-molding operations in addition to improving quality and saving time. For goods that require assembly, printing, slitting, or other value-added operations following molding, GC combines various processes and robotically executes these activities inline, immediately after molding. As a consequence, exact accuracy, additional value, and a simplified procedure are achieved. Contact GC to learn more about how our services may add value to your goods.
