Bluestar Silicones To Feature Its Easy-To-Mold Life-Like Silicones at IAPPA 2008

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Bluestar Silicones will feature its range of easy-to-use, life-like silicone RTV technology at the upcoming International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) show, November 18 - 21 in Orlando, Fla. The company also will introduce its new silicone foam technology.

Located at Booth 1517, Bluestar Silicones will host live molding demonstrations, exhibiting the ease-of-use and fast cure features of its Silbione(R) RTV 4410 QC and 4420 QC silicones. Designed for skin-contact applications, these 10- and 20- Shore A products offer manufacturers the ability to achieve high quality life-like parts in just a fraction of the time of traditional silicone molding products. These products join a range of RTV silicones that offer the same performance benefits at softer durometers, such as its 4 Shore A Silbione(R) RTV 4404 and its 28 Shore 00 Silbione(R) RTV 4528.

In addition, Bluestar Silicones will introduce its new Rhodorsil(R) RT Foam 3240. This new light-weight open cell silicone foam can be adhered to a variety of substrates, including Bluestar Silicones' skin-like RTV products, to create a realistic look and feel effect. This silicone foam is UV resistant and hydrophobic, ideally suited for long lasting outdoor displays.

"Our easy-to-use, 1:1 mix ratio silicone RTVs are in demand for their outstanding performance features," says Mark Neuber, business director, Engineered Elastomers North America. "We are very excited about the advantages in look and feel these products bring to the special effects market."

Bluestar Silicones offers a full range of Rhodorsil(R) and Silbione(R) silicone products for special effects, robotics and animatronics. For more information, please call 1-866-474-6342.
