Silicone Rubber Dispersions
ELASTOSIL ® RD and POWERSIL ® dispersions are dispersions of silicone rubbers in organic solvents. They are supplied as 1- or 2-component products and are accordingly condensation- or addition-curing. Their low viscosity allows them to be applied in extremely thin coats. This makes them ideal for industrial coating applications.
Products from the ELASTOSIL ® RD series are chiefly used for coating technical textiles. They yield exceptionally dry, hard-wearing surfaces needed for, e.g. protective clothing.
In the energy sector, POWERSIL ® dispersions are mostly sprayed onto insulators and onto cable accessories in production to render them water-repellent or electrically conducting.
