Silicone injection for children's use

Silicone is a versatile material that is commonly used in the manufacture of children's products due to its unique and beneficial properties. There are several types of silicone that are used for the production of different parts for babies and toddlers, such as soothers, bottles, rattles, teethers and teats, each with specific characteristics that make it suitable for certain applications.

One of the main characteristics of silicone is its ability to withstand high temperatures, making it ideal for the manufacture of products that must withstand frequent sterilisation. In addition, silicone is a non-toxic material, making it safe for use in children's products.

One of the most common forms of silicone used in the production of infant products is liquid silicone (LSR). This silicone has a soft and flexible texture, which makes it ideal for the manufacture of soothers and teats. Liquid silicone is also temperature resistant and can be easily sterilised, making it safe for use in baby products.

This type of silicone is used for the production of moulded silicone products. The liquid silicone (LSR) is injected into a mould and cured to form a solid part. It is ideal for the production of parts with complex and detailed shapes.

In addition to liquid silicone, there are also silicones that are particularly suitable for the production of rattles and baby toys. These silicones have cushioning and shock-absorbing properties, making them ideal for parts that babies can bite and chew on.

In general, silicone is a safe and durable material that is well suited to the manufacture of children's products. It is hypoallergenic, non-toxic and wear-resistant, making it ideal for use in baby and toddler products. Silicone is also easy to clean and maintain, making it a popular choice for parents looking for safe and practical products for their children.

At OSF we have the resources to manufacture silicone parts for children's use through the injection of liquid silicone (LSR). We analyse the application of the product in order to propose the most suitable material for the use and requirements of our customers. We also have the technology to be able to manufacture children's products in different colours.
