Silicone Micromolding

Molding the Impossible

Today surgeons can successfully perform minimally invasive surgery for a greater variety of procedures. Using smaller devices and components means patients experience less pain, shorter recovery times and safer procedures.

At Saint-Gobain, we’re helping you to meet the growing demand for micro-sized solutions. Using our proprietary silicone micromolding process, Saint-Gobain’s dedicated project engineers partner with you to design solutions for the toughest surgical challenges. Our process allows you to achieve the highest tolerance targets, higher precision and shot-to-shot repeatability than possible with conventional molding methods. 

Silicone Micromolding applications include:

  • Laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgery
  • Ophthalmic procedures
  • Advanced drug delivery
  • Vascular devices
  • IV therapy

Extreme challenges, peak performance:

  • Parts as small as 0.001g
  • Complex part geometries
  • Extremely tight tolerances
  • Holes
  • Thin wall sections
  • Undercuts
  • Threads
  • Blind shutoffs
