Leading the way with adhesives and sealants
In a harsh environment, constantly surrounded by gaps and moisture, products need to stand up to the test and deliver a reliable foundation. A solution to this common problem are products that encompass one-part moisture cure grades – a simple, cost-efficient room-temperature processing and one or two-part heat cure solutions that speed processing and accelerate time to market.
Silicone adhesives and sealants from Dow enhance the ease, flexibility and speed of processing operations, reduce the cost of mechanical fastening, improve aesthetics and fill large gaps against vibration or moisture ingress. Our silicone formulations are often solventless, minimizing the need for special storage, handling or ventilation.
As a class of materials, silicones are especially suited for high-brightness LED designs that require adhesives and sealants to maintain strong bonds at temperatures as high as 150°C.
DOWSIL™ 3140 RTV Coating is a one-part, translucent adhesive or coating with good flowability, high elongation value for vibration/ mechanical shock dampening and low stress, good flame resistance, UL, IPC and Mil Spec tested, contains UV indicator.
DOWSIL™ SE 4486 Thermally Conductive Adhesive was designed to provide efficient thermal transfer for the cooling of electronic modules, including home appliance devices. It is a one-part, white, moisture cure RTV, highly flowable, fast tack-free, high thermally conductive adhesive with controlled volatility.
DOWSIL™ EI -2888 Primerless Silicone Encapsulant Kit is suitable for encapsulating rigid and flexible circuit boards for indoor and outdoor LED Lighting, explosion proof and high ingress protection rated luminaire as well as outdoor displays applications.
