The recently concluded Medical Design & Manufacturing show in Anaheim, Calif. had its share of interesting technology on display. Here are some of the more noteworthy developments show-goers could see among the exhibits.
Putting a happy face on RTV
Bluestar Silicones USA Corp. displayed examples of how its Silbione brand materials are used, including the RTV material that went into making this fellow and his hands. The more typical use for the two-component silicone elastomer (RTV 4420 QC A/B) is for prosthetics and in masks or gimmicks for the entertainment industry. The silicone elastomer cures at room temperature by polyaddition reaction, at a 1:1 ratio. It is designed to be molded in a variety of applications that need a faster cure, particularly those requiring realistic skin feel.
