With almost 67 years of experience in silicone elastomer manufac-turing, WACKER offers around 1,000 silicone rubber products today.
The building will also include its own cleanroom area for producing and packaging silicone gels, encapsulants and silicone elastomer products under suitable conditions--an increasingly frequent demand, especially for optical applications.
The challenges of dispersing standard silicone elastomers in water are well known.
When the silicone elastomer is under external forces, the agglomerated particles act as stress concentrating centers in the silicone elastomer matrix, thereby decreasing the mechanical strength of the silicone elastomer [20].
A chemist with a long career in silicones, Brassard here offers a guide to working with silicone elastomers. He covers unique properties of silicones; basic silicone chemistry;, raw materials; formulation; manufacturing, processing, and compounding; property modification; testing; a troubleshooting guide; and the future of silicones.
The goal of this study is to identify the influence of additional CNTs as a nanofiller on the mechanical, magnetic, and dielectric properties of the silicone elastomer. It has been reported that the dielectric constant and modulus need to be optimized to obtain an effective elastomer for use in actuators and active dampers [11].
They are custom made to drawings and specifications from Class VI silicone elastomer that meets FDA standards for the utmost in purity.

The Silicone Elastomers Summit brings together manufacturers, processors, end users, designers and researchers for a summit-style technical discussion of silicone elastomer materials, global markets, processing advancements and novel applications.
The new silicone elastomer solutions share a uniform chemistry optimised at the molecular level.
The cosmetic base is comprised of an anhydrous mixture of an effective amount of at least one first non-emulsifying, gellable silicone elastomer; an effective amount of at least one second non-emulsifying silicone elastomer wherein said second silicone elastomer is nonsustainable and nonpillin; at least one non-aqueous solvent; and an effective amount of at least one water insoluble structuring agent which is compatible with said solvent and which has a melting point of between about 45[degrees]C and about 95[degrees]C.; and at least one pigment.
Target markets are mainly automotive and industrial components, for applications where the silicone elastomer alone cannot withstand pressure, or where reinforcement is contributing to the safety of the part.
