Dow Corning assembly and maintenance Adhesives & Sealants IAM

Dow Corning industrial assembly and maintenance (IAM)

Dow Corning silicone based adhesives sealants last longer and are more versatile than most organic polymer sealants. RTV sealants are durable, cure at room temperature for a hard solid rubber with outstanding performance characteristics and meet a wide variety of industrial bonding and sealing applications.

Why Silicones?

For the versatility, durability, aesthetics and application value, silicones outperform the organic. Dow Corning’s silicone sealants are unparalleled by providing:

Which Dow Corning industrial assembly and maintenance silicone?

Dow Corning silicone sealants are offered in a wide range of formulation options, including:

RTV sealants (vulcanization ambient temperature)

These silicone polymers work with a moisture condensation reaction under typical ambient conditions but can be accelerated by increasing the temperature and humidity. RTV sealants are easy to apply and offer a relatively low cost and excellent adhesion.

Heat curing

These curing times are much shorter than RTV sealants, these materials can be dispensed automatically to meet the industrial equipment mounting requirements.

Hot melt silicone sealants

Ideal for automated manufacturing of various component applications, these hot reactive melt materials provide instant green strength, which can increase productivity, improve quality and reduce costs in industrial assembly applications.

Single part materials

It contains all the ingredients necessary for the production of a cured material, these adhesives use external factors such as humidity in the air, heat or the presence of UV light

To start, complete the curing process. Single part sealant formulations are easy to use and usually have a low temperature cure or at room temperature, but moisture curing materials can take 24 hours or longer to heal completely.

Two part materials

Two component to prevent the premature appearance of curing of reactive components, these materials often use the addition of heat to facilitate or accelerate curing.

Two part formulations generally offer a longer life, high speed curing, the ability to carefully control working/opening time and curing time through changing mix ratios or temperature, but require mixing and may involve more application experience.

Silicone Foams

Ideal as swage or environmental seals to protect the environment from air, water, dust and moisture splashes, these materials are a cost-effective solution in comparison foam tapes together preformed for the use of high tolerance sealing. These materials, which are applied by automated robotic distribution, have a fast ambient temperature or low cure temperature.

Chemical sealant

Silicone sealants are generally composed of an inorganic siloxane polymer (Si-O-Si-O-Si) with a crosslinking agent, catalyst, tackifier, pigment or a plasticizing agent.

To meet specific needs, silicone sealants are offered in a variety of chemical and curing types, each with its own benefits.
