Rubber Industries' LIMFAST molding provides a fast cure and cycle time making it ideal for custom seals, insulators, diffusers, valves, gaskets, bellows and components, to name just a few applications. The liquid silicone rubber material has low compression set and resists damaging effects of light, ozone and moisture as well as heat for extended wear life. Rubber Industries offers many liquid silicone rubber grades including UL, oil resistant and high strength.

Virtually any component configuration in any quantity can be LIMFAST molded utilizing Rubber Industries' large array of automated presses in a full range of tonnage sizes.
