XIAMETER's Silicon swim cap offers aesthetic advantages

When milliseconds can mean the difference between a gold or silver medal, competitive swimmers can count on silicone accessories to give them the edge.

“Races are often won or lost by swimmers’ ability to concentrate on their technique,” said Ivan Mini, rubber global market manager for the XIAMETER brand from Dow Corning. “Silicone swim caps and goggles, among other applications, provide the performance and comfortable fit that allow them to do just that.”

Silicone swim caps offer a number of performance and aesthetic advantages.  They can be water repellant, soft, pliant, and put on and taken off easily. Also, silicone rubber provides the strength, comfort and durability for easy-to-adjust straps on goggles that protect eyes and help swimmers see clearly underwater.

“By providing comfort, style and functionality in high-performance swimming equipment, silicones can help enhance the experience for swimmers of all ages and abilities,” said Mini. “Silicone swim accessories are true champions in the pool.”

Fabricators have found success using liquid silicone rubbers in swim accessory applications. XIAMETER brand liquid silicone rubbers, such as XIAMETER RBL-9200 LSR series and XIAMETER RBL-2004 LSR series, are available to fabricators directly via xiameter.com or through a local distributor.
