Cure Systems for Military and Aerosapce Silicones

Some of SSP’s silicone elastomerics involve slight variations in pigment to match the color of customer parts. Other silicone rubber materials required full development and testing to meet customer specifications. By working closely with our partners to understand their manufacturing processes, SSP can tailor both the catalyst and cure methods to maximize efficiency, yield, and throughput.
