Properties

They are cross-linkable two-component pourable silicone gels that catalyses at room temperature with a polyaddition process (RTV-2). They contain neither toxic nor corrosive compounds that require particular safety measures during handling. The high ease of use, rapid catalysis and low viscosity allow you to operate quickly and easily. They have high resistance to atmospheric agents and aging.

How to use

Some inhibitions to vulcanization process may occur when the silicone rubber get in contact with amines, plastilines, metal salts, sulphides, tin catalysts and poly-condensation silicone rubbers. To avoid any inhibition problems, we recommend a preliminary test for the compatibility of the silicone on the material to duplicate. Before use, shake well the bottles of part A and B. Weigh the same quantity of part A and B. If the proportions aren’t exact, the curing times and the final properties can be different. Mix by hand or with a mechanical low-speed stirrer in a suitable container to minimize air occlusion. Mix about 30 seconds until a homogeneous colour is obtained. Cast the material. The curing speed is influenced by the temperature. We recommend to work in an isothermal place at 23°C. Higher temperatures accelerate the curing times, lower temperatures reduce them. It is recommended not to use the product at temperatures lower than 10°C. In these conditions, the final product performance will be difficult to achieve.
