About Elastomers and Silicone Testing

Testing is central to high quality, compliant and robust manufacturing solutions. At Romar, we employ elastomers and silicone testing at multiple stages prior to manufacture. We test various material properties to ensure consistency, that the material is fit for purpose and that it meets all regulatory standards for sectors including medical, mining, defence and aerospace manufacturing.

A brief history of Silicone Rubber

The native element of Silicon has been used since the stone age, initially to create tools for protection. Silicone rubber is a modern category of elastomer (a rubber-like material). The mid 20th century saw chemists start to develop and use silicone rubber for commercial purposes. Today we use silicone rubber for many things in everyday life and it has diverse industrial applications.

Milwaukee Silicone Elastomers Course 2019

During February 2019, Romar Engineering materials engineer Carlo Cartini attended a 4-day silicone elastomers course in Anaheim, California. The focus of this course was liquid silicone rubber (LSR), in particular its fabrication and recent advances. Carlo was the only attendee from Australia. Presenters at this course are leaders in the industry, and two were involved in the creation of liquid silicone rubber.

Cost Fluctuations in Manufacturing Materials

Romar’s engineers consider multiple factors in material selection. Fluctuating prices in manufacturing materials arise not just by the choice of material, however. There are several aspects that might affect manufacturing material costs including the need to meet industry regulations and standards, plus the impact of global markets on raw material availability and shipping.
