Almo Sil is Danish and experts in molded silicone and the manufacture of latex products
We manufacture items in molded silicone and have machines specifically designed for injection molding, making us one of the few companies in Denmark with this capability. Injection molding ensures that the casting process occurs in a closed system, minimizing contact with the surrounding environment. Additionally, we produce latex products with a focus on articles for children.
Silicone is a synthetically produced material based on silica, which naturally occurs in sand. It is a material known for its numerous advantages and applications. One of the key properties of silicone is that it is 100% free from harmful and hormone-disrupting substances such as BPA, PVC, and phthalates. This makes silicone a safe choice, especially when used in products for children and medical equipment.
Silicone is hypoallergenic and typically does not cause allergic reactions or skin irritation. It is a material suitable for individuals with sensitive skin or allergies.
Silicone is known for its flexibility, durability, resistance to heat, cold, and UV rays, as well as its high tensile strength, making it a popular material for various applications. This makes silicone suitable for products that need to be waterproof or resistant to high temperatures, such as sealants, medical equipment, and baby products, including pacifiers.
We only use medical-grade silicone, which is the purest form and type of silicone. This ensures that our products meet the highest quality standards and are safe to use.
Latex is a natural material extracted from rubber trees (Hevea Brasiliensis) in tropical regions such as Malaysia, where our latex comes from. Latex is produced by harvesting the sap from rubber trees and then transforming it into the latex we know and use in various products. Both medical products and toys are examples of applications of latex.
The natural latex from rubber trees is considered a sustainable material. This is due to the tree’s lifecycle, which lasts about 32 years. When the rubber tree reaches an age of approximately 7 years, rubber sap can be harvested twice a day for the next 25 years. This fully utilizes the tree’s resources and contributes to a long and sustainable utilization of the tree.
When the rubber tree can no longer produce latex in sufficient quantities, it is cut down. However, even after the tree is felled, the remaining wood can still be used to produce rubberwood furniture or other products, further extending the tree’s lifespan and utilization. This lifecycle of the rubber tree makes latex a sustainable material that aligns with Sustainable Development Goal number 12 on responsible consumption and production. It is a natural resource that can be renewed through proper handling and sustainable harvesting.
