What is the difference between solid-state injection of silicone and solid-liquid conversion

Solid Silicone Rubber Injection Molding and Solid to Liquid Conversion are two different processing techniques for silicone, which differ in material state, processing, and application areas. The main differences between these two processes are as follows:olid Silicone Rubber Injection Molding: Definition: This is a process of injecting solid silicone rubber material into a mold through an injection molding machine, then heating and pressure it to flow and fill the mold, and finally cooling and solidifying to form a product.

Material status: Solid silicone rubber particles or powder are used. Processing process: including preheating, melting, injection, cooling, and demolding of materials. Application areas: Commonly used in the manufacturing of medical devices, food grade products, baby products, seals, gaskets, electronic accessories, etc. Features: It can produce products with complex shapes and precise dimensions, suitable for large-scale production.

Solid to Liquid Conversion:
Definition: This term is not a common term in silicone processing, it may refer to the process of a material transitioning from solid to liquid. In silicone processing, it may involve the process of solid silicone rubber melting into liquid at high temperatures. Material state: Usually involves the transition from solid to liquid, but this is not a specialized processing technique. Processing process: may include steps such as heating and melting, but there is no fixed and widely recognized “solid to liquid” process. Application field: The application field of this term is not clear because it is not a specific process. Characteristic: As it is not a specific process, there are no specific production characteristics.

Liquid silicone injection molding technology is more advanced, efficient, and has a smooth surface.

Conclusion: Solid state injection molding is a specific and widely used molding process in the production of silicone products, while “solid state injection molding” is not a specific silicone processing technology. If you are referring to the transition of silicone from solid to liquid during the processing, then this may be a step in the solid-state injection process, where the solid silicone rubber material melts into a liquid state after heating and is then injected into the mold.
In contrast, the solid-liquid conversion process adopts a more advanced liquid silicone injection molding technology. Liquid silicone has the advantages of good fluidity and fast molding speed, making it easier to fill the mold and achieve rapid solidification during injection molding. In addition, the solid-liquid conversion process can also achieve A The precise ratio of B glue, with precise and rapid quantitative injection, has improved the quality and production efficiency of the product. Meanwhile, the fluidity of liquid silicone also makes the surface of the product smoother, reducing the workload of post-treatment.
When discussing silicone processing technology, commonly used methods include “solid injection molding” and “liquid injection molding.”, Clear defined terms such as LIM, rather than “solid to liquid”. If more specific information is needed or there are specific process requirements, it is recommended to use industry recognized terminology to ensure communication accuracy.
