Bluestar Silicones Expands LSR Capacity in the U.S.

Bluestar Silicones, a global integrated silicones supplier, announces it has expanded its liquid silicone rubber (LSR) capacity at its facility in York, SC/USA, to meet the growing needs of the marketplace. This expansion increases capacity by approximately 30%.

According to J. Christopher York, President of Bluestar Silicones North America, the LSR market is growing at a rate of about 8%. Key markets for LSR include healthcare and medical products, consumer products, electrical and electronic products, and automotive components. The company’s LSR product line offers high-performance physical properties in easy-to-process formulations, yielding higher productivity and less defects for molders.

In 2012, Bluestar Silicones relocated its manufacturing facilities in Ventura, Calif., and Rock Hill, S.C., to a 226,000-square-foot facility in York as part of its global growth strategy. The investment included state-of-the-art cleanrooms and enhanced systems to ensure the highest level of quality.
