This paper demonstrates the comparisons of molding with micro molds made of different elastomeric polymers. Micro molds made of pure polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), 0.3% carbon nanotube (CNT) enforced polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), 2% carbon nanotube (CNT) enforced polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and commercial available high temperature silicon rubber sheet (Avon Group) were studied. Micro moldings using different molding pressures were performed. By comparing the dimensions of micro features produced with different molding pressures, molding accuracies of using micro molds made of different elastomeric polymers are obtained. Results of this study provide valuable information for the development of elastomer micro mold insert for micro injection molding.
