Course description:

 

HCR silicone rubber is a versatile material that is inert, very flexible, and suitable for prosthetic use.  HCR silicone rubbers are clay like in the pre-cured state and may be formed into almost any shape without the need to build complex molds.  Fabricate liners, partial feet,  hand and finger appliances.

 Available as a two-part system, this compound is mixed with the help of a two-roll mill and baked at a low temperature to achieve cured, durable rubber. It is available in several compatible formulations that produce different finished firmness.   Add new power to your problem solving capabilities with these adaptable, elastic, ultra-strong materials.

 

Attendees will learn the essential principles for making a variety of prosthetic and orthotic devices, and each attendee will fabricate a silicone liner during the course.
