    Composition of a tufted carpet

    Composition of a tufted carpet: The new VINNAPAS® CA 55 is suitable for formulating highly-filled precoats which bond carpet fibers to the primary backing. In addition, it also enables the formulation of secondary coatings, which, in turn, bond the carpet to the secondary backing (graphics: Wacker Chemie AG).

    Ice Cube Mold

    ELASTOSIL® from WACKER covers a wide range of silicone-rubber products that offer extremely diverse properties. They are suitable for use in a large variety of industries. Silicones are used in shower heads, tubing and cable insulation, as well as in household items such as flexible ice cube molds (photo). The ready-to-use silicone compounds are usually made by incorporating the crosslinker, pigment and other additives into the rubber base.

    Display

    Direct light sources or bright ambient light generate reflections that can greatly reduce the readability of displays. As the test display (photo) shows, these reflections can be almost completely eliminated by bonding the displays with a silicone gel that WACKER custom developed for VIA optronics, a company that enhances displays in a special bonding technique known as optical bonding. The left, unmodified half has a relatively low contrast ratio and reflects strongly. The right side was optically bonded with VIA bond. Thanks to the better contrast and the almost total absence of reflections, the display is much easier to read. (Photo courtesy of VIA optronics GmbH)

    SILPURAN® AUX 8250 RO

    Silicone tubes show up on x-ray charts if a contrast medium has been incorporated into the silicone rubber compound. The new SILPURAN® AUX 8250 RO masterbatch simplifies incorporation of the contrast medium and allows producers to vary the dosage. (Photo courtesy of Helix Medical Europe GmbH)
