    Is there a recommended type of rhemometer (curemeter) for use in forumulating HCR materials? Is there any other recommended equipment aside from ASTM tensile testing that could be beneficial to extrusion or a transfer molding process. Equipment is very expensive so I need to get the right tools. Thanks.



    Hi Chuck- We (at Albright Technologies) do not work in material formulation or sililcone extrusion, we specialize in rapid silicone prototyping via means of injection, compression, and transfer molding. For transfer molding HCR materials, I would advise you to purchase the following equipment: heated shuttle presses (or hand crank presses), ovens (for part postbaking, mandatory with peroxide cure HCRs), metrology equipment for part verification and first article inspections, CNC machines for mold cutting, CAD and CAM software and a computer powerful enough to run it efficiently, and lastly packaging equipment to streamline your shipping process.
