A solid, frangible material shed from various implanted materials, such as breast implants, prosthetic joints or indwelling devices (e.g., haemodialysis tubing), composed in part or entirely of silicone.
The 2015 program will discuss developments in molding and processing techniques to improve efficiency and lower costs, while additonally examining silicone elastomer materials, including liquid silicone rubber and the latest innovation in silicone properties.
com)-- Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation for the healthcare industry, today announced here at MD&M West (Hall D, Booth #1751) Dow Corning[R] QP1 Silicone Elastomers, a new silicone technology for the company's high consistency rubber (HCR) product line.
The new product range includes the CAF line of products for flame sealing and junction bonding; they are one-component silicone elastomers consisting of four grades (CAF 505, 510, 520, and 530) that cure at room temperature.
The cosmetic base is comprised of an anhydrous mixture of an effective amount of at least one first non-emulsifying, gellable silicone elastomer; an effective amount of at least one second non-emulsifying silicone elastomer wherein said second silicone elastomer is nonsustainable and nonpillin; at least one non-aqueous solvent; and an effective amount of at least one water insoluble structuring agent which is compatible with said solvent and which has a melting point of between about 45[degrees]C and about 95[degrees]C.
