Bluestar Silicones unveils innovative silicone foams

Bluestar Silicones USA : 22 November, 2011  (New Product)
Bluestar Silicones is launching a new technology, SILBIONE RT Foams, which are liquid materials enabling the production of silicones foams, with low density (from 0.18 to 0.25) and open cells.

The foams also meet healthcare and medical standards such as ISO 10 993-1 and USP Class VI tests - cytotoxicity, skin irritation, skin sensitisation and are certified as biocompatible.


SILBIONE RT Foams are delivered in a two components package of low viscosity fluids.


Once part A and part B are mixed, two reactions start simultaneously:



  • Silicone elastomers cross link, from a polyaddition reaction (no by-products)

  • Hydrogen gas is released to promote cells formation


"Thanks to a very accurate study of the basic mechanisms, we have designed a new SILBIONE RT Foam range which combines low density together with excellent mechanical properties," said Delphine Blanc, PhD, Senior Scientist at Bluestar Silicones.


With all these properties, the SILBIONE RT Foams fit perfectly with the healthcare market, in terms of technical needs, regulatory requirements and formulation's flexibility.
