600 & 700 Series, silicones for high processing and coolant fluid & oil resistance!
BLUESIL 600 & 700 series are silicone master-batchs vulcanizing on heating after addition of a vulcanization agent (chosen according to the transformation process).
Example of Applications : Producing articles with low compression set and high rebound resilience. Moulding, extrusion and injection of articles with good mechanical properties and notably low compression set and good resilience (spark plug caps, hoses, connectics, various seals, building sections, etc.)
200 Series, the low compression set & high resiliency silicones
BLUESIL MF 240 U & MF 280 U are silicone master-batchs, which are hot curing after addition of a cross-linking agent (chosen according to the transformation method).
Example of Applications Producing articles with good compression set. Producing articles exposed to oils (with or without insert). Use in blends with MASTER BATCHES of greater hardness (coating of cylinders, etc.).
SILBIONE® Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSRs) are two-component platinum-catalyzed silicone elastomers designed for liquid injection molding healthcare and medical devices, including applications of less than 30 day implantation in the human body. Available in 01 to 25 durometer Shore A, Bluestar Silicones' SILBIONE® LSRs offer the distinctive advantages of easy processing and easy release combined with high performance physical properties. Designed specifically for healthcare applications, SILBIONE® LSRs meet or exceed testing requirements of United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) Class VI. Biocompatibility testing addresses the categories of evaluation for cytotoxicity, skin sensitization and skin irritation specified in ISO 10993 for device use of less than 30 days duration.
The easy processing and high performance physical properties of the SILBIONE® LSRs make them suitable for a broad range of applications including:
Fabrication of healthcare and medical devices, including less than 30 day implantation Skin contact parts like liners Balloons Orthopedic Insoles and cushioning applications Prosthetic liners Rollers
The SILBIONE® range of LSRs and HCRs is specifically designed for high quality HEALTHCARE solutions:
Silbione LSRs offer distinctive advantages of easy processing, easy release and high performance physical properties to improve part appearance and functionality, and productivity. Silbione HCRs make them ideal for a variety of medical device applications including molded medical device parts, balloon catheters and extruded tubing
Silicone Master batch, heat curing after addition of a vulcanisation agent (chosen according to the processing method).
Example of Applications BLUESIL MM 771 Series are particularly recommended for the production of moulded pads or parts used in antivibration or damping systems in sectors such as aeronautics, aerospace, the electronics industry, transport, etc.
100 & 900 Series, the perfect compromise of properties
Silicone Master Batch, heat curing after addition of a vulcanisation agent (chosen according to the processing method).
Example of Applications : Extrusion, moulding and injection of translucent or coloured articles with a very good compromise of properties and notably high tensile strength. Tubing and profiles of transparent items.
HD Series, for a long terme vibration resistance and a good precessability
BLUESIL HD Series are hot curing silicone rubbers after addition of a vulcanization agent (chosen according to the transformation process), with a good tear strength & low compression set
Example of Applications : Production of turbo hoses, parts for EGR system, gaskets, grommets, spark plug, miscellaneous profiles… by calendering, extrusion, compression and injection moulding process (very good compromise of properties, low compression set, high tear and a good oils resistance).
FRC 8470, the new silicone for Fire Resistant Cables
We have worked hard for many years to improve the performance levels of our HCR silicone rubber compounds for safety cables. Our goal is to always to provide the best mechanical properties, temperature stability, resistance to climatic conditions and high ceramifying capacities in case of fire, to produce low smoke and effluent emissions.
Our products today are designed to comply with the main national functional circuit integrity standards (DIN VDE 4102-12, BS 6387 CWZ, NFC 32070 C1 CR1) and European (EN 50200) and International standards (IEC 60331, IEC 60332).
We test cables by burning them at temperatures over 900°C for a relatively long time (>30 minutes) to ensure that the insulated sheath maintains its integrity. To achieve the best results, we design unique combinations of formulations using: • A silicone polymer matrix • Fumed silica • A customized mix of mineral fillers • Synergetic fire performance additives
These are tested in extruded cables, thus allowing us to evaluate the properties of the formulations initially ad after being exposed to a fire.

Improving your flame-retardant performance with Sidistar® from Elkem
Using Sidistar® in thermoplastic or elastomeric compounds will bring synergistic effects with your flame retardancy systems. Its functionality is based on its capability to improve char integrity and works both in halogen free as well is in halogenated systems. With the right formulation Sidistar® is capable of replacing e.g. antimony to an important part.
