LYON, France, February 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Bluestar Silicones is launching a new line of TCS 7560 and TCS 7561 Silbione(R) products designed for the elastic band market for lingerie and medical applications (support stockings and medical equipment). These two new silicone elastomers have excellent "anti-slip" non-compression properties, thus improving wearer comfort.
Self-fixing stockings... a real success!
For more than twenty years, self-fixing stockings have applied transparent silicone technology, which is adhesive and "anti-slip" for elastic bands and lace: stockings and socks stay up! This "anti-slip" technology is also used for other lingerie articles, braces and bra cups for example.
Bluestar Silicones offers new sensations
Today, Bluestar Silicones is going further with a new range of platinum polyaddition bi-component products, Silbione(R) TCS 7560 and TCS 7561, based on its expertise in LSR technologies (Liquid Silicone Rubber) and its experience in the medical device field.
This innovative technology offers new solutions to the paramedical market for support stockings and prostheses.
Silbione(R) TCS 7560 provides elasticity, less compression for the wearer and is perfectly harmless to the skin.
Silbione (R) TCS 7561 is even more flexible, with a very low compression thus reducing skin compression and friction, bringing the wearer greater comfort and confidence, for new sensations and enhanced pleasure!
From an coating process point of view, the new range offers flexibility and higher productivity, allowing to substantially accelerate production output.
