ELASTOSIL® LR 3071/60 A/B
Self-adhesive liquid silicone rubbers of the ELASTOSIL® LR 3071 series are paste-like, easily-pigmentable two-component compounds with extremely short curing times. Their vulcanizates are noted for excellent mechanical and electrical properties.
ELASTOSIL® LR 3071 series are primerless, selfbonding grades that adhere to various plastic substrates (e.g. PA, PBT) and metals, but not in the mold (adhesive adherence, protects against loss prior to assembly). The bonding is improved by a subsequent heat treatment process (e.g. one hour at 100 °C) or by a longer storing at room temperature. Because of the individual surface properties each substrate must be tested before mass production. If necessary one has to check the development of adhesive properties over time and/or in an environment relevant to the application. The vulcanizates are noted for good mechanical and electrical properties.

This disclaimer of warranty and liability also applies particularly in foreign countries with respect to third parties' rights.
ELASTOSIL® LR 3071 series are particularly suitable for the economical production of large series of overmolded parts (thermoplastic/elastomer), even in a comolding process (shuttle mold) under standard conditions, without any special treatment of the mold surface.
Parts made from ELASTOSIL® LR 3071 can generally be used for technical applications without postcuring.
Postcured parts can be used for food contact applications and are suitable for use under the Recommendation "XV. Silicones" of the BfR and FDA § 177.2600 under observance of any given limitations on extractable and volatile substances.
The A and B components are delivered ready to use in 20 kg pail and 200 kg drum kits. With adequate metering equipment, they can be pumped directly from the original containers into the injection molding machine and mixed by a static mixer. The mixing ratio is 1 : 1. At room temperature, mixtures of A and B components have a pot life of at least three days.
Note: Start-up of new molds should be supported by use of ELASTOSIL® AUX Mold Release Agent 32.
