Do you have a silicone part design that you want to make a reality? Let Albright be your one stop shop for silicone molding solutions.
How do you get your parts prototyped?
We have streamlined our prototyping process so that you will have samples in hand in 15 business days. In order to get started, please send us your part drawing, 3D CAD model, and contact information via our RFQ page. When sending in 3D CAD models please use Iges, Parasolid, Solidworks or Step formats. We will review your project and provide a quotation within 2 business days.
Rapid Silicone Prototype Molding Solutions
Silicone Prototypes: Albright prides itself in providing rapid silicone prototypes in 15 business days or less. We work with silicone materials exclusively, which makes us your one stop shop for silicone molded parts. Whether you need a custom silicone o-ring or a part with complex geometric features, Albright is here to guide you through the silicone prototyping process.
Micro Molding Prototypes: We provide silicone micro molding to our customers seeking intricate micro parts. We have developed an in-house capability to complete 3D CNC machining at a microscopic level. This allows us to design and mold silicone micro parts. We focus on the success of the micro part program, rather than the lowest price. The unique nature of silicone micro molding results in a significant amount of time being spent on the manufacture of the micro mold, so high quality parts with a strong yield are produced. If you would like to learn more about our silicone prototyping and silicone micro molding services, please visit our silicone micro molding page.
Overmolding Prototypes: We offer liquid silicone overmolding capabilities, in which uncured silicone rubber is applied to a base material or substrate, and formed to shape, while in direct contact with the substrate. Liquid silicone is typically bonded to metal, thermoplastics and silicone. Silicone overmolding takes advantage of either mechanical bonding and chemical bonding, or both. A mechanical silicone bond takes place by physically creating undercuts and interlocks for the liquid silicone to "grab" hold of the substrate. Chemical silicone bonding is typically stronger and more reliable than mechanical bonding, since it takes place on a molecular level. The resulting chemical bond welds the cured silicone to the substrate material. If you would like to learn more about overmolding silicone on to different substrates, please visit our silicone overmolding page.
