HACKENSACK, N.J.—Master Bond Inc.'s new MasterSil 151S addition curing two-part silicone system can be used as an adhesive, sealant, coating or form-in-place gasketing material.
"A unique feature of this product is that despite its silicone chemistry, it passes NASA low outgassing specifications," the company said.
The mix ratio of MasterSil 151S is 100 to 5 by weight and it cures with the addition of heat, the company said. With mixing, it has a smooth paste consistency and has a working life of 6 to 12 hours for a 50-gram mass.
"This silicone is ideal for applications where low stress is required, since it is highly flexible across a wide service temperature range. It is capable of resisting aggressive thermal cycles and shocks," Rohit Ramnath, Master Bondsenior product engineer, said in a statement.
The compound works well with substrates including metals, ceramics, composites, and many plastics and rubbers, the company said.
