Albright Technologies Pushes The Envelope In Silicone Overmolding

By: Kevin Franzino

Albright Technologies specializes in the rapid prototyping and molding of silicone parts, as well as performing cutting edge research and development work on silicone components. Albright Technologies is well versed in the use of different technologies and techniques for overmolding silicone onto a variety of substrates. Recently, Albright was involved with a development project that consisted of overmolding silicone onto a 303 stainless steel substrate. While overmolding silicone onto metal substrates is not typically difficult, the interface of adhesion is a 0.010" knife edge.
With no room to create any substantial mechanical interlock, Albright turned its efforts to cleverly exploring material options and pre-processing techniques, and by combining a self-bonding silicone material with a platinum primer and the use of a corona treatment process immediately prior to part molding, Albright was able to succeed in creating a ten thousandths of an inch thick membrane across a half inch bridge, that not only met the end customers pressure testing requirements, but exceeded them.
