Emphasize convenience, with no mixing required and the ability to cure at room temperature
Silicone adhesives boast excellent electrical properties and can be formulated to be insulative with a high dielectric strength, or conversely electrically conductive. Many one part silicone adhesives release a corrosive entity, such as acetic acid, but there are special formulations that are totally non-corrosive and can be used with electronics. These are often used as a conformal coating for electronic circuit boards. Silicone systems are also used for sealing cables and sensors in both appliances and electronics.
Silicone adhesive applications run the gamut from household tasks to bonding and sealing in outer space. Their unique properties make them ideal for a wide variety of applications ranging from the assembly of components for commercial printers to bonding medical catheters. With their ability to resist water and other chemicals, silicone systems are used for sealing gaskets and engines in the transportation industry. They are also used for potting and heat sink attachment in electronic applications.
