Do you want to use silicone? Great - because the material silicone offers a whole range of advantages: Among other things, it is permanently flexible, UV-stable, insensitive to temperature, flame retardant, odourless and tasteless, resistant to organic solvents and biocompatible.
Other, often undesirable, basic properties of silicone are low surface energy, which is why paint and adhesives do not adhere to it and a high coefficient of friction makes the surface vulnerable to dirt and dust.
We offer a variety of surface treatment techniques, for example, to make silicone dust repellent and to prepare it for later modification. Furthermore, we offer you a wide range of surface modifications that we can apply individually to your component. We are pleased to advise you on suitable pretreatment methods for your silicone component for a later optimum interaction between silicone component and coating.
We accompany you through all your project phases, from prototypes to series production.Our consulting concept
Accelerate the process of your project and benefit not only from the cost and time savings but also from the early check of the product features. We create prototypes as far as possible already in the original materials in order to draw possible close-to-production conclusions.Learn more about our Prototypes & sample construction
Take advantage of our many years of experience to implement your idea economically & reproducibly. We use finite elements, mould flow as well as light simulations, depending on the task.Let your projects take shape
You inform us about your individual requirements - we advise you and develop your individual product together with you. Our specialists assist you with their expertise and efficiently guide you through your successful project.
From the silicone mould to the finished component
Together with you, we develop individual surface solutions and silicone components with added value for you and your customers. Take advantage of our consulting services right from the early stages of the design and concept phase, and benefit from our unwavering commitment to finding groundbreaking solutions with the knowledge of what is possible.
“We do not have standard products - only customer specific components.”
Objectives of a feasibility study:
Silcos checks possible solutions for your project regarding their feasibility.
In the context of a feasibility study, we analyse different solution approaches for you, identify possible risks and assess the success of your silicone component.
Feasibility studies for parts made of liquid silicone
In cooperation with our partner we simulate the behaviour of liquid silicone. As a result of the simulation we find the suitable procedure for your component and reduce later cost-intensive optimisation steps.
For components made of either solid (HTV) or liquid silicone (LIM or LSR), you can rely on our many years of experience for the planning of the subsequent implementation.
Sustainably prevent production errors
To speed up your product development, we offer not only simulations, but also extremely fast and efficient production of samples, models and prototypes - both in terms of functionality and appearance.
As a result, subsequent cost intensive optimisation steps are anticipated and accelerated. Using existing and new technologies, we develop products tailored to your needs. We manufacture prototypes & models made of liquid silicone and solid silicone.
Where others reach their limits, we move forward with new solutions.
Advantages of prototype and sample construction:
We design the development and simulation especially according to the innovative ideas and wishes of our customers.
Due to our many years of industry experience and our enormous pool of knowledge in relation to various technologies, with the necessary courage and vision we can innovate your idea and turn it economically and reproducibly into reality.
