  • The lines are for high-purity specialty silicones, encapsulation and coating compounds, as well as UV-activated silicones for the medical, LED and electronics industries. (webwire.com)
  • Such a system will cure on its own at room temperature and (unlike the platinum-based addition cure system) is not easily inhibited by contact with other chemicals, though the process may be affected by contact with some plastics or metals and may not take place at all if placed in contact with already-cured silicone compounds.

  • Fillers
  • Furthermore, throughout the 1950s and the 1960s, plastic surgeons used synthetic fillers-including silicone injections received by some 50,000 women, from which developed silicone granulomas and breast hardening that required treatment by mastectomy. (wikipedia.org)
  • hardness
  • High tear strength, low hardness silicone elastomer-forming composition is provided using a unique combination(s) of polyorganosiloxanes and organohydrogenpolysiloxanes, where the polyorganosiloxanes and the organohydrogenpolysiloxanes contain both straight-chain and resinous polyorganosiloxanes. (google.es)
  • E) inhibitor, and where combined (A)-(E) comprises a curable high tear strength, low hardness silicone elastomer-forming composition, wherein when said composition is cured it has a Shore A hardness of less than about 35. (google.es)
  • 2. The curable high tear strength, low hardness silicone elastomer forming composition of claim 1 where at least two organopolysiloxanes (A) comprises the reaction product of linear polyorganosiloxane and branched polyorganosiloxane. (google.es)
  • The hardness range is wide, from 10-80 Shore A. Silicones have been in use in medical applications for over 30 years because of their long-term stability and biocompatibility. (chemtec.org)

  • Silicone elastomers are important materials for many application areas such as automotive, electric and electronics, gaskets, domestic appliances, fabric coatings (e.g. airbags), baby bottle teats, and medical devices. (chemtec.org)
  • breast implants
  • Nonetheless, in the 1990s, the saline breast implant was the prosthesis most common device used for breast augmentation surgery in the United States, because of the U.S. FDA's restriction against the implantation of silicone-filled breast implants outside of clinical studies. (wikipedia.org)
  • In surgical praxis, after having emplaced the empty breast implants to the implant pockets, the plastic surgeon then filled each device with saline solution, and, because the required insertion-incisions are short and small, the resultant incision-scars will be smaller and shorter than the surgical scars usual to the long incisions required for inserting pre-filled, silicone-gel implants. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nonetheless, in the 1990s, the saline breast implant was the prosthesis usual for breast augmentation surgery, because of the U.S. FDA's restriction against the importation of silicone-filled breast implants. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the case of the woman with much breast tissue, for whom sub-muscular emplacement is the recommended surgical approach, saline breast implants can afford an aesthetic result much like that afforded by silicone breast implants - a "look" of proportionate breast size, smooth contour, and realistic texture.
