Webinar Description:

Sealants and adhesives based on silicone polymers stand out from the crowd because of the unique features of their chemical backbone, which can be thought of as an inorganic (Si-O-)n polymer chain 'packaged' into a robust 'envelope' formed by the organic side groups. Due to the hybrid nature of this polymer, silicone sealants and adhesives offer outstanding durability, unparalleled flexibility over a very wide temperature range, and excellent adhesion, even to difficult substrates. These features make silicone sealants and adhesives suitable for a wide range of applications in the medical, electrical, electronic, automotive, aerospace and construction industries. However, with versatility comes complexity.

Silicone sealants and adhesives can be a confusing topic, as a large variety of formulations and cure systems are commercially available, including two component systems that require the addition of a curing agent, one component systems that cure simply by the moisture in the air, radiation curing materials that cure with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light or a stream of electrons (EB), or pressure sensitive versions that adhere to surfaces with very slight contact pressure.
