Influences of Manufacturing Technology on the Mechanical Properties of Silicone Rubber Structures
The paper presents the results of investigations made to clear how the different manufacturing technologies of silicone rubber structures affect the mechanical properties of the products. The problem is not obvious since there are numerous devices produced especially for the health care. We also controlled extreme high purity silicone rubbers and compared the results with data measured on simple industrial silicone rubbers. The aim was to see the difference between expensive medical materials and normal ones to simplify the fatigue tests and to decrease the costs of other mechanical investigations.
