ELASTOSIL® RT 713
ELASTOSIL® RT 713 is a non-slump, addition-crosslinking, thermal-curing, one-component silicone rubber.
- ready-to-use, one-part system
- rapid heat cure
- low density
- low hardness
- high compressibility
- primerless adhesion to many substrates
- general-purpose sealant
- FIPG and CIPG applications
All surfaces must be clean and free of contaminants that will inhibit the cure of ELASTOSIL® RT 713. Examples of inhibiting contaminants are sulfur containing materials, plasticizers, urethanes, amine containing materials and organometallic compounds – especially organotin compounds. If a substrate’s ability to inhibit cure is unknown, a small scale test should be run to determine compatibility.
Because of the high thixotropy (shear thinning effect) ELASTOSIL® RT 713 can be dispensed easily with all dispensing equipments.
ELASTOSIL® RT 713 works best when cured at 115 °C or more depending on the size and heat sink properties of the components.
ELASTOSIL® RT 713 shows good primerless adhesion to many substrates (metals, glass, ceramics, plastics). We recommend running preliminary tests to optimize conditions for the particular application.
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.
