Albany, N.Y. -- Momentive Performance Materials will showcase its family of world-class LSR elastomer technologies at Medical Design& Manufacturing West, an event centering on medical devices and taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California on February 10-12, 2009. Located in booth 1738, Momentive will be featuring StatSil* elastomer that can provide built-in antimicrobial protection in or on the human body, the LSR7000 family of highly transparent liquid silicone rubbers, and CLS5000 and LSR 2740 TP3783 (LSR 2740) self-bonding, two component liquid silicone rubbers.

"We introduced StatSil elastomer at MD&M East in New York and experienced tremendously affirmative response from the healthcare marketplace," said Lynn Colucci-Mizenko, Momentive's global marketing manager for Healthcare. "With the heightened concern over microbial contamination on critical medical device surfaces, our new Statsil antimicrobial silicone elastomers can provide medical device designers with an added layer of protection, built-in, to help minimize microbial growth in or on the human body. StatSil elastomer is a highly innovative offering that can help designers of medical products for applications such as catheters, wound drains, and IV components."

Colucci also commented on the LSR7000 series, "The LSR7000 platinum-catalyzed LSR series was originally introduced for potential use in specialty electronics applications, but its high optical transparency and excellent physical stability make it an ideal product to consider for healthcare, in applications such as wound drains, endoscopic devices, catheters, and respiratory components. This is a great example of the value that Momentive can offer as a diverse, global company."

As healthcare product designers continue to develop innovative devices with greater complexity, Momentive is working to meet these growing challenges with new technical solutions. CLS5000 and LSR2740 self-bonding LSR can reduce process steps by allowing primerless adhesion to a variety of substrates, including metals and engineered plastics, while preserving the efficient demolding characteristic of standard liquid silicone rubbers.

Momentive will display its expansive portfolio of silicone elastomers, adhesives and gels for potential applications in the healthcare industry, including Addisil* elastomers, the Tufel* portfolio of addition-cure elastomers and the new Momentive family of fully-fluorinated silicones (FFSL).
