TOGOHK works with a wide range of silicone materials to produce silicone molded prototypes. Often a customer is uncertain of which material they need for their application. The TOGOHK Engineering staff can help guide customers down a path to success by utilizing years of experience and extensive knowledge. Additionally, customers can purchase prototypes made of several different materials, then test the various products in their application to determine which material type best suits the demands of the product. Our prototypes are molded using custom (dedicated) metal tooling that is guaranteed for hundreds of parts and most tooling can run nearly any type of silicone and other materials without modification.
Materials we use include:
High Consistency Rubber (HCR)
Epoxies, Plastics, and More!

Why Choose HCR?
When choosing materials to manufacture critical parts and components, consider High Consistency Rubber (HCR); this is the primary material we process here at TOGOHK, and it is therefore where our expertise lies. Its characteristics and chemical properties make it an ideal material for many applications in a wide range of industries.
Properties of HCR:
Hypoallergenic, inorganic backbone
Hygienic, resistant to bacteria and mold growth
High thermal stability
Extreme temperature range performance
Unique colors and visual effect possibilities
Electrically conductive grades
UL component recognition
EXAMPLE: Liquid Silicone Rubber Ear Bud
Liquid Rubber Silicone
Current Applications Include:
Gaskets, seals o-rings
Needle-free valve sights
Skin contact devices
And much more!
