AKRON, Ohio, July 26, 2016 — Shin Etsu Silicones of America has announced the KE-2062 series of 70-Shore A, optically clear, silicone liquid injection molding (LIMS) materials.
The KE-2062-70 LIMS material was utilized to mold an entire magnifying glass including two key surfaces: the textured, embossed handle and bezel, and the diamond polished lens. The differing surface textures gave the appearance of a two-component part with the simplicity of a single material. It features a wide operating temperature range, transparency and flexibility.
The material was designed as an innovative response to meet the increasing thermal requirements for high-brightness LED optical lenses.
