Recent breakthroughs at Lauren make premium grade silicone more economical for many applications. We have long term experience extruding silicone and applying adhesives on silicone for applications in a number of industries including architectural, construction, electrical components, medical and high-end weather stripping.

The performance characteristics and material attributes, which make silicone attractive for these high-end applications, are also sought after in more price sensitive products such as glazing seals, cases and more typical seal applications. Lauren’s advancements in material and processing may bring silicone within your price targets now, more than ever before.
