Silastic LSRs from Dow offer enhanced low temperature cure

  10/9/2019 - Midland, MI - Dow is enabling greater design freedom and process efficiency with its latest introduction to the North American elastomer market. As part of the full portfolio of high performance Silastic silicone elastomers on display at the 2019 International Elastomer Conference (IEC) in Cleveland, OH, Dow announces the launch of the Silastic LTC 9400 Series liquid silicone rubbers (LSRs). This improved low temperature cure LSR opens the material to new applications across a wide range of industries, including automotive, electronics and consumer. “The LSR market today is being driven by growing customer demands for optimum quality, processing and efficiency, as well as greater design and application flexibility,” said Gifford Shearer, market manager, Silicone Elastomers. “Low temperature cure LSRs, like the Silastic LTC 9400 LSRs, lend themselves well to addressing each of these needs as customers look to get more from the silicone rubber products they use. We look forward to seeking together new possibilities in this space and across the entire silicone elastomer market, beginning at the International Elastomer Conference.” An ideal solution for high-volume injection molding applications, Silastic LTC 9400 LSRs provide fast temperature activation across a wide processing-temperature range. The low-temperature curing nature of this series allows overmolding the LSR elastomers onto low-melting point plastics or other thermally sensitive components, including electronics devices, an application previously not possible with LSRs. Beyond design and application flexibility, customers can also expect to see greater efficiency, processability, robustness and energy savings when incorporating Silastic LTC 9400 LSRs into their specifications. “In addition to the Silastic LTC 9400 LSRs, IEC attendees will also be able to engage with the total comprehensive portfolio of Silastic silicone elastomers at our booth,” said Shearer. “Our technical professionals are available to listen to your questions, learn about your needs and explore the possibilities together. Dow Senior TS&D scientist, Craig Gross, will be on-site at IEC sharing technical, product and industry insights in Room 25C during the following presentations: Tuesday, October 8, 4:45 p.m. – 5:15 p.m. – New Developments in Fluorosilicone Rubber; Thursday, October 10, 11:15 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. - Low Temperature Cure LSR Technology Enables Processing Improvements. Visit the Dow booth (#1248) to view sample 3D printed parts and speak to our technical professionals about our Silastic silicone elastomers, which will also be featured at K2019 next week. Additionally, Silastic 3D 3335 LSR will be on display at the R.D. Abbott Company, Inc. booth (#645). Stop by to witness live 3D printing demonstrations showing how we are enabling additive manufacturing and rapid prototyping utilizing 3D printing of a heat cured LSR.
