What is silicone compression molding production?
The uncured silicone rubber pieces placed between two halves of a pre-heated tool mold. The mold is then closed under an overall pressure from vulcanizer molding machine. The pressure ensures the material forced into all area of the mold cavity, making it heated by conduction from the mold surface, and cured to the shape of the cavity. The shaped silicone components together with excess material which we called flash will be removed or demolded by hands then.
Below is the details for each stage of silicone molding production.
