NUSIL BRINGS INNOVATION TO IMPLANTS AT MD&M MINNEAPOLIS

Carpinteria, California, (September 13, 2016) — NuSil Technology LLC (www.nusil.com) is debuting their newest line of medical grade liquid silicone rubbers (LSRs) on September 21– 22 at MD&M Minneapolis to an audience of more than 5,000 industry professionals focused on discovering the latest innovations in medical device design and manufacturing. The new LSRs extend NuSil's signature Implant Line of silicones designed specifically for liquid injection molding of precision components for lifesaving, life-changing devices used deep inside the human body.

NuSil engineered the MED-5800 series of LSRs at a molecular level, incorporating decades of feedback from device fabricators, equipment manufacturers and toolmakers looking to continually improve manufacturing yields, component quality and production throughputs. The new silicones are designed to help them achieve just that, and feature both more efficient rheometry, or cure profiles, and more consistent rheology, or viscosities. The result is better in-mold performance, minimal scorch, more efficient fills, lower flash, shorter cure times, and less waste.

Formulated with a focus on processing parameters, they also feature excellent lot-to-lot consistency for highly predictable, highly reliable manufacturing results over time.

"NuSil has always supported high risk industries, and we absolutely share our customers' philosophy that 'good enough is never enough'", says Brian T. Reilly, NuSil's Marketing and Sales Director, Medical Implants. "These new LSRs reflect our fundamental commitment to continual, client-driven innovation that helps our partner companies not only grow and profit but also continue to produce new products that protect and improve lives".

The new LSRs are available in a full range of durometers and require no post-cure. As with all NuSil products, they are backed by industry-leading levels of customer service as well as unparalleled technical and regulatory support, including the filing of Master Device Files (MAFs).
