Protomold has announced its new Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) injection moulding service, a versatile material for use in an abundance of industries.

The company specialises in fast turnaround, and the LSR service is no different to its standard thermoplastic capabilities.

To add to the speed, users can upload a 3D CAD model using Protomold’s secure website and receive an interactive quote within one business day, accompanied by a geometrical analysis of the part and design-for-manufacture recommendations.
