NuSil to Feature MED-6670 & MED-6671 Curable Elastomeric Coatings at Arab Health 2012

Published on 2012-01-09. Author : SpecialChem

Arab Health 2012 is the largest healthcare exhibition & congress in the Middle East. Now in its 37th year, Arab Health provides a superior arena for the world's leading manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors to meet the medical and scientific community from the Middle East and beyond.

This year in Stand ZU58, NuSil Europe will be featuring newly released products, MED-6670 and MED-6671, two curable coatings that decrease the coefficient of friction of a cured silicone surface by a minimum of 50 percent when compared to a non-coated silicone surface.

NuSil designed these products to overcome obstacles in applications in which silicones come in contact with each other, such as precision molded parts. Silicone elastomers inherently have a high degree of surface tack and a tendency for blocking (sticking to themselves by virtue of chemical affinity), which may cause problems in applications.

Once cured, the coating chemically bonds to the silicone elastomer substrate, mimicking its mechanical properties. The result is a smooth finish with durable, yet flexible coating that resists abrasion from moving, sliding and rubbing parts.

MED-6670 is a two-part, heat-cured silicone elastomer dispersed inxylene. MED-6671 is aone-part room temperature-cured silicone elastomer dispersed in tert-butyl acetate.
