Silicone foam gasket for corrosion-sensitive parts

That means, the assemblies and parts, to which the material is applied, are not subject to acidity and resulting corrosion. After curing, Fermasil 166 is permanently temperature stable to 180 °C, and even 250 °C for short periods, and also has good mechanical properties. In addition, it has high resistance to aggressive chemicals like most acids and bases. The product is applied with the two-component low pressure mixing and dosing machines made by Sonderhoff Engineering GmbH in Hörbranz, Austria. According to the company, the product adheres to a wide range of substrates without priming, such as plastic, glass, aluminium, and zinc, and cures very quickly. Fermasil 166 silicone foam gaskets can be set to be very soft - the hardness range is between 25 and 50 Shore 00. For example, if used for housing gaskets, low closing forces are possible. This opens up saving potential in the design of assemblies and system components, says the company.
