ELASTOSIL® LR 3162 A/B
Electrically conductive liquid silicone rubber. ELASTOSIL® LR 3162 A/B is a paste-like, two-component compound with short curing times.
The vulcanizates are noted for good mechanical as well as electrical properties and for good heat resistance within a temperature range of -55°C to +210°C.
Specific features of ELASTOSIL® LR 3162 A/B
- Electrically conductive
- Reduced volatile content
These grades are particularly suitable for the economical production of large series of injection-moulded electrically conductive articles. Parts made from ELASTOSIL® LR 3162 A/B can be used for technical applications, but do not comply with regulations concerning use in the pharmaceutical and food industry.
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 8 hours.

This product is available in 20 kg pail and 200 kg drum kits.
Once opened, containers should always be resealed after use to prevent the platinum catalyst from being poisoned by amines, sulphur or phosphorus compounds. The 'Best use before end' date of each batch is shown on the product label. Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
