Silicone adhesives and sealants are based on elastomeric technology and offer good heat resistance and flexibility.
With excellent temperature, chemical and ageing resistance, silicone adhesives are used for industrial bonding, sealing and FIPG (Formed in Place Gaskets). They also offer good dielectric insulation, making them suitable for electronic applications.
Silicone adhesives and sealants are classified into two main categories:
Alkoxy curing systems are neutral cure silicones that release methyl ethyl ketoxime upon curing. These systems are odourless and non-corrosive, making them suitable for sensitive components and electronic applications.
Acetoxy curing systems release acetic acid and cure quickly compared to Alkoxy systems. These may be unsuitable for some substrates such as metal and concrete which may react to the acid. Some acetoxy systems are biocompatible, making them suitable for manufacturing medical devices.
Silicone adhesives and sealants are extremely versatile and used in aerospace, electronics and optical applications.
We offer a range of silicone adhesives and sealants with different cure types, tensile strength and pack sizes to suit your application.
