Nusil Introduces 100 mol% Fluorosilicone Gel to Fill Small Gaps

Published on 2011-05-19. Author : SpecialChem

Carpinteria, California -- NuSil Technology LLC, a global leader in silicone materials for the electronics, aircraft, automotive and aerospace industries, debuts its 100 mol% fluorosilicone gel. The gel is used to fill small gaps and backfill electronics in applications that require solvent and/or fuel resistance.

FS-3502-1 is a two-part, white, fluorosilicone gel available in an easy-to-use 1:1 mix ratio. It bonds aggressively with most surfaces, and its cure can be heat-accelerated. FS-3502-1 is hydrocarbon-resistant for components exposed to aviation fuels, such as JP-8; chemicals; and solvents used in automotive, electronics and aircraft applications.

With a low Type '00' durometer, FS-3502-1 exhibits low modulus and absorbs stresses incurred during thermal cycling. It is a tough gel with minimal tack and low moisture permeability. In addition, electronics applications benefit from FS-3501-1's non-corrosive properties and minimal contamination. FS-3502-1 is able to compensate for CTE mismatch and exhibits minimal shrinkage after cure.

"FS-3502-1 is another great addition to the myriad fluorosilicone products we offer," said Brian Nash, vice president, sales and marketing. "It is self-leveling and has a conveniently low viscosity compared to other typical fluorosilicone materials."

This product is controlled in accordance with applicable ITAR regulations and is RoHS compliant. FS-3502-1 is available in white, but can be translucent or color-matched to the Pantone Matching System (PMS) or Federal Standards.
