Accelerating the crosslinking process of RTV silicones

The silicone you selected has ideal properties but the vulcanizing process takes too long? Is there anything to be done?

Accelerating the crosslinking process of room-temperature-vulcanizing (RTV) silicones is crucial to many manufacturing processes. To get the best results, it is necessary to not only choose the right product for the application, but also to properly control the curing process. 

Air humidity is one of the factors that affect the speed of the vulcanizing process. The higher the humidity, the faster the silicone crosslinks. In many applications, additional devices are used to increase air humidity. Wacker Elastosil offers a range of room-temperature-vulcanizing products, for which the crosslinking process can be successfully accelerated by increasing air humidity.

Elastosil products contain special additives that allow faster and more uniform curing. Wacker Chemie’s silicones, both one- and two-component, are designed to be as easy to apply as possible, while maintaining the highest quality and reliability.

Therefore, it is no surprise that Wakcer’s Elastosil series is a frequent first choice of engineers in areas such as the electronics, defence, automotive and railroad industries, as well as many other fields where it is required to create a durable bond that is both flexible and resilient. 

Although there are competitively priced counterparts on the market, Wacker’s Elastosil products are far more reliable and durable compared to other products. This is why many companies choose the Elastosil products, which guarantee the highest quality of the final product and meet all safety standards.
