LSR and HCR parts
Injection molded parts made from liquid (LSR) and solid-high-temperature-vulcanizing (HCR) silicone
RICO manufactures molded parts made from liquid silicone rubber (LSR) and solid high temperature vulcanizing silicone rubber (HCR) in large volumes. We produce billions of units every year using fully-automated production methods.
We began producing injection molds for silicone parts in 1994. Production has been based at our Thalheim site since 2009. Production runs continuously 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But only our machines work at night. Read more about our unmanned production.
We only produce parts according to our customers’ specifications. RICO can also manufacture multi-component parts featuring a combination of silicone and other materials.
We currently produce parts for the automotive, healthcare and life science, sanitary and household, and industrial sectors.
