NuSil Technology Unveils New Ultra Low Outgassing Potting and Encapsulating Silicone Elastomer

Published on 2009-08-17. Author : SpecialChem

Carpinteria, California -- NuSil Technology, a cutting-edge manufacturer of silicone-based materials for aerospace, aircraft, electronics and photonics industries, recently added SCV-2585, a new potting and encapsulating elastomer offering robust mechanical and physical properties, to its line of Ultra Low Outgassing™ silicone materials.

SCV-2585 is an excellent fit for electronic and space applications requiring Ultra Low Outgassing and minimal volatile condensables under extreme operating conditions. Due to its high tear strength, SCV-2585 is ideal for use in potting connectors, cable harness breakouts, molded high-voltage terminals, and seals and gaskets. This elastomer far surpasses industry-standard ASTM E595 and boasts ‹0.010% CVCM and TML ‹0.10%, while maintaining excellent mechanical and physical properties, which are often compromised when achieving low outgassing and Ultra Low Outgassing™ properties.

"Physical and mechanical properties in combination with low outgassing requirements have traditionally been a give and take," said Brian Nash, vice president of Sales & Marketing at NuSil Technology, "but SCV-2585's unique chemistry creates a durable material, while still far exceeding industry standards for CVCM and TML."

With a work time of 30 to 90 minutes and tack-free in eight hours, SCV-2585 offers convenience and simple application. It also features a wide operating temperature range and the ability to accelerate cure with the addition of heat.
