"The elastomer is also resistant to weathering, washing and can be subjected to some sterilisation processes that are usually required in healthcare applications," stated Goswami. "The flexibility translates to safety and comfort for patients and ease of design for OEMs. Also, the high thermal insulation characteristics of the silicone foam helps in expanding its applications."
The properties of being light weight, flexible and resistant to weathering make it an ideal product for use in home care medical devices, which are the need of the moment. Also, the stability of the two part system helps increase the shelf life to one year, which makes it a superior product.
