For high-quality, persistent consumer goods used in our houses, food-grade silicone rubber has grown in popularity. The strength, purity, and reusability that are necessary for various food preparation and storage goods are provided by this particular type of silicone. It is perfect for use in gas and electric appliances since it can tolerate extremely hot and cold temperatures. In this article, we’ll look at the advantages and uses of liquid silicone rubber (LSR) that is appropriate to use in food products, in addition to how it could enhance their quality and safety.

What is Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR)?

The material known as liquid silicone rubber (LSR) has no taste or odor and has been recognized for being mold and bacterium-resistant. It is simple to maintain and hydrophobic, indicating that it repels moisture. LSR is a safety barricade against unwelcome contaminants in items related to food by the aforementioned features. 

The two components of food-grade liquid silicone rubber, designated as component A and component B, are an addition-type silica gel. Silica gel makes up component A, whereas platinum catalyst is found in component B. White carbon black, silicone oil containing hydrogen, platinum catalyst, and 107 base gum make up the entirety of the addition-type two-component liquid silica gel. The platinum catalyst is one of the essential parts of this. Only a platinum catalyst can guarantee that the two components of AB are properly strengthened and developed.
