Protecting worker safety and optimizing plant output are 24/7 drivers in chemical and petrochemical manufacturing. From oil resistant gasket sealers to multi-surface adhesives, silicone solutions from Dow create trusted bonds for industrial assembly and maintenance applications.
Dow silicone adhesives and sealants last longer and are more versatile than most organic polymers. They adhere to a wide variety of industrial metals, glass, ceramics, plastics and painted surfaces; they are resistant to long-term chemical exposure; and many comply with UL flammability standards.
One-part acid cure silicone sealants offer the convenience of handling a single material. They provide general purpose bonding and sealing, plus solvent resistant versions when oil-resistant sealants are required.
RTV (room-temperature vulcanizing) silicone sealants offer good adhesion at relatively low cost. Cure speed can be accelerated by increasing temperature and humidity.
Heat cure silicone sealants cure faster than RTV silicones and can be automatically dispensed to meet industrial equipment assembly requirements.
Reactive hot-melt silicone sealants provide instant green strength, making them ideal for automated assembly applications where line speed is critical.
