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 (UV, ozone and radiation) aging; 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, find use in the most varied construction and 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, and as sealants in the construction industry.
