For years, silicone has been used in mobile phone cases, iPad covers, electronic products, medical devices, and other industrial applications. Have you ever wanted to make a custom silicone skin for your company’s instrument…just like your iPhone case?
Silicone is the ideal material for cases, skins, and covers because it is durable, lightweight, and shock-absorbent. It is also non-toxic, heat-resistant, and waterproof, making it an excellent choice for protecting your device. Its flexibility also makes it easy to apply and remove, and it won’t scratch or damage your device. In addition, silicone cases and skins are available in a variety of colors and patterns to suit your tastes.
Most electronics/industrial equipment starts with a plastic enclosure but sometimes the plastic doesn’t offer enough protection. Silicone cases and skins can be custom molded around your product to assist with shock absorption, and protective shielding and can improve aesthetics.
While silicone offers innate benefits to custom cases, this optimal material needs to pair with optimal design and manufacturing techniques to get the most effective and functional result.
