WACKER develops modular system for pourable silicone rubbers

June 12/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- WACKER, the Munich-based chemical Group, has developed a modular system for pourable, addition-curing silicone rubber compounds, reported the company on its site.

With this system, available under the ELASTOSIL VARIO name, both the reactivity of the silicone rubber compound and the hardness of the elastomer can be adjusted as desired. Compounders and silicone processors can now produce tailor-made products in any desired quantity.

ELASTOSIL VARIO is suitable for encapsulating and coating, for making technical moulded parts, and for mould making. 

Typical applications of ELASTOSIL VARIO are encapsulation of electronic devices and circuits and coating of technical textiles and metal or plastic surfaces. The modular system also lends itself to the production of gaskets and of silicone mould parts, such as those used for making prototypes in medical technology. It can also be used to make all kinds of reproductions and moulds.

ELASTOSIL VARIO is translucent and can be pigmented in any color. The two self-mixed components can be processed in pressureless casting systems, either by hand or with the aid of two-component mixing and metering lines.

As MRC informed earlier, Wacker Chemie AG stopped the short-time work schedule introduced at Burghausens polysilicon facilities back in early October 2012. The Munich-based chemical company is trying to meet growing demand from its solar-sector customers. To do so, the company is ramping up its current capacities - which are currently curbed to two-thirds of full utilisation - and is, thus, ending short-time work at Wacker Polysilicon. 

Wacker Chemie AG is a worldwide operating company in the chemical business, founded 1914. The company is controlled by the Wacker-family holding more than 50 percent of the shares. The corporation is operating more than 25 production sites in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. The product range includes silicone rubbers, polymer products like ethylene vinyl acetate redispersible polymer powder, chemical materials, polysilicon and wafers for semiconductor industry.
