Type: Advances in Silicone Elastomers from High-Temperature Vulcanization to Room-Temperature Applications

High-temperature vulcanized (HTV) silicone elastomers undergo curing or vulcanization at elevated temperatures. The HTV silicone elastomer process gives HTV silicone elastomers exceptional properties such as high tensile strength, durability, and resistance to extreme temperatures and environments. Liquid silicone rubber is distinguished by its low viscosity and ability to be injection molded, making it ideal for intricate designs and mass production processes. Room-temperature vulcanized elastomers are characterized by their curing process at ambient temperatures, making them suitable for a broad range of applications without the need for special curing equipment. RTV elastomers are preferred for applications requiring flexible molds, adhesives, and sealants that can cure at room temperature, making them ideal for DIY projects, small-scale production, and repairs.

End-User: Versatile Silicone Elastomers, Transforming Industries with Durability, Flexibility, and High-Performance Features

Silicone elastomers are sought after for their high-temperature resistance, durability, and flexibility and are extensively used in gaskets, seals, hoses, ignition cables, and other components exposed to extreme conditions in automotive & transportation applications.
