Silicone sealants are elastic sealing materials that offer outstanding durability, weather resistance, and adhesion. As buildings and structures move, such as during earthquakes and typhoons, silicone sealants move flexibly with them. They are therefore commonly used in sealing applications in high-rise buildings and housing, civil engineering, clean rooms, and in the joints of aquariums.
Silicone fluids are generally colorless transparent liquids. They exhibit excellent resistance to heat, cold, and moisture. There is also little viscosity change in silicone fluids over a wide temperature range, and they have outstanding electrical properties. In addition, they are notable for their characteristics of mold-releasability, water repellency, lubricity, and defoaming properties.
Silicone rubber compounds have properties of both inorganic and organic materials. They are composed of unique silicone gums and high-purity silica. Silicone rubber compounds offer many outstanding features not found in other organic rubbers.
One-component RTV rubbers
With one-component RTV silicone rubber compounds, work can begin as soon as the product is ejected from its tube or cartridge. These products become elastic rubbers after curing, and adhere well to almost all materials as they cure. These properties make one-component RTV silicone rubbers suitable for a wide range of application.
