ELASTOSIL® COLOR PASTE FL GREY RAL 7042

ELASTOSIL® COLOR PASTE FL GREY RAL 7042 is a ready-to-use masterbatch comprising specific pigments and reactive silicone polymers which are commonly used to produce ELASTOSIL® liquid silicone rubber.

This ensures a homogeneous covulcanization of the color paste without significant impairment of the physical properties (e.g. hardness) and without migration as it may be observed for systems based on silicone oil.



Properties

ELASTOSIL® COLOR PASTE FL GREY RAL 7042 is pourable and ready-to-use after stirring up. A dilution is not required.

The colors have generally a good resis­tance to sunlight, UV and hot air. The resistance should be checked for individual cases, especially for long term applications. If the dosage recom­mendations are followed, the mechanical pro­perties of the colored vulcanizates will not be significantly impaired.

Specific features of ELASTOSIL® COLOR PASTE FL GREY RAL 7042

  • Additive
  • Low volatile

ELASTOSIL® COLOR PASTE FL GREY RAL 7042 has been developed particularly for coloring addition-curing ELASTOSIL® LR liquid silicone rubber and ELASTOSIL® RT RTV-2 silicone rubber.

Before using ELASTOSIL® COLOR PASTES FL, the paste must be thoroughly stirred. This is also required if there has been a long interruption in production. It may be necessary to repeat this procedure in case of very long production runs.

Depending on the color intensity desired, 0.5 to 4.0 % pigment paste should be added, the usual dosage being 2 %. Generally, the dosage should be kept at a minimum. In individual cases, an excess of color paste may slow down the curing characteristics. Customers may produce other colors by mixing pigment pastes. Suggestions for formulations can be provided on request.
