Technical Data Sheet

LIM* 6061
LIM6061 is the next generation in 60-durometer liquid silicone rubber. It is a two-component product formulated for use in liquid injection molding to
produce high performance parts. It is clear, but easily pigmentable with Momentive masterbatch colors. The combination of excellent tear strength and
very high tensile strength makes this product suitable for a wide variety of applications. Mechanical parts such as connector inserts, seals, flexible
mounds, and valve parts can be made readily from LIM6061 liquid silicone rubber.

Key Features and Benefits

High clarity for excellent visibility
