We produce in excess of 30 million silicone spring hinges every year, so we know what we’re talking about when it comes to supplying the consumer packaging industry.
A safer alternative to metal or plastic hinges, our springs are used primarily for opening plastic cases and boxes. The characteristics of Burnetts’ silicone compound allows our springs to stand in a compressed position for long periods of time without any loss of functionality.
Among the springs we produce are:
Silicone Dogbone Spring
A highly sophisticated liquid silicone injection moulding, this is fitted between a plastic lid and its box to perform a spring release action at the push of a button.
Silicone Flat Spring
These are produced in different shapes and easily adjusted to suit a variety of applications. A typical use is a spectacle case, which has small silicone strips on both the base and the lid of the case that flip open when a clip is released.
Gaskets and Seals
Liquid silicone rubber gaskets and seals are widely used in the packaging industry when a dust and water-tight connection is needed. They can be re-used because they do not compress and lose shape.
