An All-Rounder for Countless Applications
Silicone rubbers consist essentially of silicone polymers and fillers. They cure at high temperature (HTV/LSR grades) or room temperature (RTV grades) with suitable reactants, forming a three-dimensional structure and transforming the uncured compound in a plastic state into an elastomeric rubber
Silicone elastomers are flexible at low temperatures and resistant to heat and aging (UV radiation and ozone). They are easy to process and have good mechanical properties that remain unchanged over a wide temperature range. They have a neutral taste and are biologically unreactive.
Future-Oriented Curing Technologies
The numbers of silicone composite insulators and silicone cable accessories have been rapidly increasing. Commonly used methods of curing silicone rubbers for electrical engineering components are approaching their limits. There is already a demand for even higher processing speeds. WACKER is always looking for new solutions. One future-oriented curing technology for the transmission and distribution industry is UV curing of a new, highly tracking-resistant silicone elastomer.
