RTV silicone is a pourable type of rubber that solidifies on room temperature. Dozens of industries use liquid silicone rubber molding technology to create molds in different shapes and sizes. Industrial companies usually create negative molds from RTV liquid silicone. It’s easy-to-use and allows a range of industrial rubber solutions at a very competitive price.
Producing industrial rubber parts from RTV silicone is a very cost-effective method as there is no machine cost and the basic material is available at a low price. Products made of RTV silicone have very low shrinkage precise size and shape. It’s easily applicable on glass, plastic or any fragile materials.
Using RTV liquid rubber technology is appropriate for diverse industrial goals. Whenever it comes to rubber parts in glass industry, food manufacturing, logistics or electronic industry, RTV silicone offers a solution that fits industries’ requirements. It’s seals machine parts properly, resist against heat and shock and applicable on fragile items.

an insight of pourable RTV silicone
In our example rubber is molded on a long metal part. Because of the high temperature molding process shrinkage is present on the centre of the part, so it measures bigger on the sides. This results to an uneven and unwanted shape.
By machining the metal parts to be convex, we can minimize the effects of the shrinkage. By changing technology to RTV silicone we can insure the lowest possible shrinkage and create very precise products.
