Four new grades of 3M™ Dyneon™ Peroxide (PO) Cure Fluoroelastomers were launched in 2019. These improved PO cure grades include the highest fluorine content of any 3M PO cure at 70.1%, require no metal oxides for curing, and have expanded mooney viscosities. These properties allow for better chemical resistance and improved processing.
RDAbbott teamed up with Cancarb and ARLANXEO to explore elastomer sealing performance advancements using Thermax® N990 and X_Butyl® Bromobutyl designed for hydrogen fuel system technologies.
German RepRap’s new L320 Liquid Additive Manufacturing (LAM) 3D printer is a real “Game Changer” for 3D printing with liquid silicone rubber.
LORD® In-Mold Bonding (IMB™) liquid silicone rubber (LSR) adhesives are non-tacky polymer-based coatings that when applied to a substrate provide a structural bond to a rigid or elastomeric polymer, which is formed under heat and pressure. LORD IMB 3000 series adhesives are designed for bonding platinum-cured silicone rubber to a variety of thermoplastic and metal substrates during the injection molding process.
Dow presenta las bases de caucho de silicona fluorada SILASTIC™ con un rendimiento optimizado para demandas competitivas.
PREMIX® is a historical brand of polymer-bound materials from RDC S.r.l that has been in the marketplace since 1974.
Improved processing and durability performance in architectural sealing using Cancarb’s Thermax® N990 and ARLANXEO’s Keltan® EPDM.
Dow’s portfolio of liquid silicone rubber includes specific LSR formulations, marketed under the SILASTIC™, DOWSIL™, XIAMETER™ and EVOLV3D™ brands. Injection-molding grades, coating grades, a 3D printing grade, electrical grades and optical grades are available, as are LSR color masterbatches.
DOWSIL™ Moldable Optical Silicones provide unprecedented design freedom and performance for challenging applications such as automotive, general, professional and consumer lighting and outdoor displays.
At a time when technical support is becoming tough to find, it’s good to know that 3M maintains state-of-the-art testing and analytical labs, pilot manufacturing facilities, and most important, an experienced staff of application engineers.
