Platinum Cured Silicone

This curing process occurs at room temperature, hence it is also known as Room Temperature Vulcanization (RTV). A platinum salt is added to siloxane as it is being extruded, exposure to air causes cross-linking to begin and silicone to be formed. The by-product of this reaction is ethanol which is easily removed. The silicone material formed by platinum-curing is generally not as strong as that formed by peroxide-curing.

The advantages of platinum curing are fewer potential leachables, smoother surface, less protein binding and better clarity. This means the products of this process may be better suited for use in the biotech, pharmaceutical and medical industries.

Altec have over 30 years experience in manufacturing Plastic & Rubber Extrusions, Extruded Profiles and Tubing. We're quite rightfully proud of our reputation for consistently meeting the needs of customers over that time. Because we've remained small and focussed we've also remained more attentitive, more cost effective and more responsive than larger manufacturers.
