Customizing the cure speed of low-temperature curing liquid silicone rubbers

How can we further increase the design freedom provided by SILASTIC™ LTC 9400 series Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSRs)? One way is to customize your curing speed using our specialized additive: SILASTIC™ LTC 9400 Acceleration Additive.

This additive is a platinum catalyst formulation, specifically developed to customize curing speed of SILASTIC™ LTC 9400 series LSRS, rubbers which expand design freedom and process efficiency for automotive components and consumer goods through the feature of low-temperature curing.

Addition of SILASTIC™ LTC 9400 Acceleration Additive to SILASTIC™ LTC 9400 series LSRs can lead to:

1. Increased curing speeds at a given cure temperature, which can result in:

  • Cycle time savings
  • Faster deep-section cure of thick-walled articles

2. Cure temperature reduction, which can result in:

  • Energy savings
  • Capability to co-mold heat sensitive substrates
  • Capability to over-mold heat sensitive components

Special additive for cure-rate acceleration

SILASTIC™ LTC 9400 Acceleration Additive can be used to increase the elastomer cure rate. Specifically developed for these LSRs, the acceleration additive can be used at loadings up to 3% by weight of the uncured elastomer mixture (Part A and Part B). The cure profile can be adapted to specific reactivity requirements, and process cycle times can be optimized across a broad cure-temperature range.
