NuSil's new LSRs, the MED-5800 series, feature both more efficient rheometry, or "cure profiles", and more consistent viscosities. The result is better in-mold performance – minimal scorch, more efficient fills, lower flash, shorter cure times, less waste – that enables fabricators of critical implantable devices to achieve both higher yields and faster throughputs.


  • Two-part, translucent silicone system designed for use with injection molding equipment
  • Rapid cure with no post-cure required
  • 1:1 Mix Ratio (Part A: Part B)


  • For the injection molding of parts requiring a material with a medium durometer including: molded rubber stoppers, gaskets, seals, valves, o-rings and other precision parts
  • Suitable for over-molding applications
  • Can be used with NuSil’s healthcare color masterbatches for applications requiring colored silicones

NuSil Technology’s MED-5830 may be considered for use in human implantation for a period of greater than 29 days.
