ELASTOSIL® is one of WACKER's best established brands. It covers a wide range of high-quality silicone products with extremely diverse properties. Besides silicone rubber and silicone rubber dispersions, the brand also includes silicone-rubber processing additives.
Silicone rubbers consist essentially of silicone polymers and fillers. They undergo high-temperature (HTV) or room-temperature vulcanization (RTV) with suitable reactants, during which the uncured compound in a plastic state is transformed into an elastomeric rubber with a three-dimensional structure.
Silicone rubbers are heat resistant, low-temperature flexible and resistant to aging (UV, ozone and radiation); they are easy to process and have good mechanical properties that remain unchanged over a wide temperature range. They are also reliable and environmentally compatible, with a neutral taste.
ELASTOSIL®silicone products, with their universal range of properties, are used in the most varied industrial applications. Their near-to unlimited potential makes them ideal for applications in almost all industries – such as automotive and mechanical engineering, electronics and electrics, textiles, baby articles, toys, domestic appliances and sports articles, as well as the construction industry.
