What types of injection molding polymers can medical silicone be over-molded on?

Question: What types of injection molding polymers can medical silicone be over-molded on?

Answer: Medical silicone-plastics bonding has increasingly become a hot topic in the bonding industry and very limited research has been conducted to prove compatibility of the two materials. A ShiEtsu adhesion strength graph below illustrates a limited amount of polymers used in this experiment.
