MED-5800 series

"NuSil's new LSRs, the MED-5800 series, feature both more efficient rheometry, or "cure profiles", and more consistent viscosities. The result is better in-mould performance – minimal scorch, more efficient fills, lower flash, shorter cure times, less waste – that enables fabricators of critical implantable devices to achieve both higher yields and faster throughputs."
