Ear-tronics Manufacturing Process
We begin with shell making, using the impression of the shape of your ear as our starting point. We dip the impression in a special wax that will keep it from sticking to the silicone, and then the impression is placed in a plastic cup. This cup is then filled with silicone and left to dry for a few minutes. The impressions are taken from the solidified silicone and cut to match the specific shape of the aids you desire.
After cutting, the impression is buffed and filled with duplicoid material. The impression is then removed from the solidified duplicoid, and that duplicoid is filled with acrylic material. This acrylic piece can be “cured” in a UV chamber. The solidified acrylic is taken out of the duplicoid material, and there you have it: a hearing aid shell!
