  1. The “Platinum Silicone” is referring to the ‘cure’. Instead of using peroxide they use platinum.

    This is very technical, but explains that Tensile Strength and Tear Strength increase by using the platinum (pt)

  2. So I read the link about Platinum vs. Peroxide. So it seems to be that it may be better? i am wondering as I have had a reaction to silicone found in medical support hosiery. I wonder if the Platinum would be better? Or should I stay away from silicone cups altogether.
