In addition, the silicone itself can be customized to tune properties such as work time, cure time and physical properties to support desired performance characteristics.
The major growth drivers for this market are increasing demand for photoinitiators in packaging, automotive and electronic industries as they improve overall productivity by reducing cure time and generating low VOC emissions.
Standard Blend is the customary hardener with an increased working and cure time sufficient for most project applications.
Formulated for direct bonding, Loctite 7389 Primer and Loctite 3196PR LOCA provide a solution for the cure through depth limitation of side curing, the work-in-process and potential damage to the LCD of heat curing, and the long cure time required for moisture cure.
All systems provide benefits in themselves but gas catalytic is becoming the preferred process for curing powder in most industries as it provides a rapid heat up and fast cure times. Typically gas catalytic IR systems require around 60% less cure time compared to convection ovens as the energy is directed solely on the coating and does not seek to directly heat up the base material.
A cost-effective breakthrough in adhesive and sealant solutions, VORASIL SMP are a proprietary, unique hybrid comprised of a polyurethane backbone and silane end groups, allowing for a balance of low viscosity and fast ambient cure time. VORASIL SMP allow adhesive and sealant manufacturers to formulate materials to reach targeted performance results while also achieving silicone-like properties without silicone cost.
This new system is reported to enhance the distribution of reinforcement fibers in the molding process which enhances product quality and strength, reduces press cure time by 50 percent, and is especially effective for thicker bosses and structures.
The simulation with the fastest cure time was tested and proven to reduce the cure time to within the allotted cycle time.
Sherwin-Williams Industrial and Marine Coatings has introduced Fast Clad ER Epoxy Pipeline Coating, which provides improved edge retention and a faster cure time than conventional epoxies and allows pipeline coating repairs to be made quickly and easily while minimizing downtime, according to the company.
This would indicate that the samples were not completely cured and may require a longer cure time or curing in molds that had holes drilled in them for more ventilation.
Development of specimen geometry; effects of bondline thickness, wood anisotropy and cure time on fracture energy.
