This article will go over overmolding of silicone rubbers on to thermoplastics, metals, electronics and other substrates. Silicone rubber is overmolded onto plastics to abosorb shock, act as a seal, give a soft feel to touch or to separate the non biocompatible internal components of a device with a bioinert silicone rubber elastomer.
