Silicone gels are two-component, addition (platinum) cure chemistry and most are designed with a one-to-one mix ratio system. Silicone gels will cure at either room temperature or can be heat cured for faster processing and can be either automatically or hand dispensed. Specialty gels can also be formulated to only cure with the use of heat in order to achieve a very long pot life.
Silicone gels are used in numerous electronic applications when a soft and highly flexible encapsulation or potting is required. CHT’s silicone gels protect delicate components and assemblies from vibration, thermal and mechanical shock, as well as guard against moisture corrosion and other harsh environmental factors.
Many of CHT’s silicone gels are optically clear in appearance but can be tinted for visual identification. Also, if optical clarity is not required, fillers can be added to produce tougher, more rigid gels.
CHT’s silicone gels are available in a variety of hardnesses, penetrations and viscosities. Low viscosity gels will easily flow around complex components and thixo-gels can be applied where non-slumping or sagging is required. Silicone gels typically provide a primerless, “pressure sensitive” type bond to most substrates. However, chemical adhesion can be achieved through the use of a primer.
