With PolyJet 3D printing technology, TriMech can create LSR / liquid silicone rubber molds more efficiently and at a lower cost.

LSR is very versatile and has very unique properties, which makes it a frequently used material for silicone casting. It is non-reactive, stable and resistant to extreme environments and temperatures. Making LSR parts with room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) molds is a multistage process requiring time and labor to make the patterns and molds.
