Finding Your Momentive Alternative from DowSil
Effective Solutions from DowSil
Its silicones have unique properties and benefits that make them the preferred materials for many applications and industry sectors, including the aerospace sector. Do you know what the keys to its success are? The durability, structural resistance and adhesive properties of its sealants and adhesives, are capable of increasing the useful life of many components. High thermal stability and stress relief properties, as well as electrical insulation, fire and weather resistance, are also some of the unique properties of their solutions. In addition, its adhesives offer greater reliability and long-term performance. Likewise, its products protect against humidity, dirt and thermal and physical damage.
DowSil in the Aerospace Sector
Historically, the aeronautical sector has worked with Dow (Dow Corning) silicone adhesives and sealants. Many of these applications and specifications have also been extended to GE/Momentive signature products. In order to make it easier for you to find the counterpart of a Momentive product, we leave you the list of equivalences between Momentive and DowSil.
Our DOWSIL adhesives and sealants are manufactured in 3 plants around the world, China, Europe (Belgium and Germany) and the USA. This allows for easier location and marketing of DOWSIL products.
It is important to note that we do not guarantee equivalence. Therefore, it is recommended to test your application to demonstrate its suitability. If you need help finding an alternative product, ask for technical assistance with our specialists.
