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.
