ELASTOSIL® A07 TRANSLUCENT
ELASTOSIL® A07 TRANSLUCENT is a free flowable, solvent-based RTV-1 silicone dispersion. It cures at room temperature or elevated temperature by reaction with air humidity to a flexible silicone coating. During cure it splits off an organic amine.
- ready-to-use, one-component system
- low module
- excellent primerless adhesion to many substrates
- no use of organotin catalysts
Specific features of ELASTOSIL® A07 TRANSLUCENT
- Flexible at low (-40 °C) and high temperatures (+180 °C)
- Low viscosity

Multipurpose sealant and coating material.
ELASTOSIL® A07 TRANSLUCENT is a free flowable, solvent-based RTV-1 silicone dispersion. It cures at room temperature reaction with air humidity to a flexible silicone coating. During cure it splits off an organic amine.
It can be applied by dipping, spraying, brushing or coating. Thinner coatings can be obtained by addition of solvents (e.g. toluene, white spirit), thicker coatings can be realised by multiple step coating.
The product contains about 25% of solvent (b.w.) therefore suitable equipment has to be used and precaution measures due to the solvent vapours have to be taken.
ELASTOSIL® A07 TRANSLUCENT is a one-part room temperature curing coating therefore the curing rate depend atmospheric humidity. The curing rate can be accelerate on exposure to carbon dioxide concentration above 1% p.b.v.
Uncured or partially cured silicone can be removed by help of organic solvents such as alipatic or aromatic hydrocarboncleaning should take place before the rubber is fully cured. Once completely cured, only mechanical removal supported by prior solvent swell is possible. In thin films, Wacker Silicone Remover S8 is suited as well.

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.
