the holy grail
what if we could merge the advantages of an industrial manufacturing process like injection molding and the advantages of low cost, rapid tooling, and high details of the silicone rubber molds?
This is the question many have had over the years and now is possible thanks to SiOCAST, a company from the CONIEX group.
a quest to expand silicone rubber applications
SiOCAST is a company born in 2017 as a spin-off of CONIEX Group. For the last 35 years, CONIEX has been an industrial company with two key activities:
- Silicone rubber compounding and manufacturing for high-temperature applications, mostly for the spin casting industry. Also supplying casting equipment and foundry accessories.
- Surface treatment of metal parts, delivering turn-key installations for mechanical post-processing equipment such as vibratory machines and shot blasting or sandblasting.
what does SiOCAST mean?
we named the company to the base molecular chain of silicone rubber, which is a polymer composed of Silicon bonded to Oxygen backbone chains with vinyl or methyl side groups.
you know it
more than 35 years behind us
As a silicone manufacturing company, CONIEX’s goal was to push the boundaries of the applications and markets where their silicone molding products could be used. Solving the injection molding problem was the main goal of the management team, so back in 2006, the company started intense R&D projects to make it happen.
After 8 intense years of deep R+D, some years up to 17% of the company’s turnover, a final solution was developed and patented, thanks to the partnership with Miniaturas Alemany.
A complete production process that represents a manufacturing revolution: the injection molding in silicon rubber molds.
We are supported by more than 35 years of experience in a leading company in this industry: the CONIEX Group

advantages of the silicone rubber
Silicone rubber is used in many fields and industries thanks to its amazing properties:
- tear strength
- heat resistant
