Momentive Performance Materials
For more than 75 years, Momentive has delivered competitive advantages to our customers throughout their product cycles: from elevated process efficiencies and enhanced material properties to superior end-product performance.
Momentive’s silicone elastomers offer exceptional and customizable properties in liquid silicone rubbers (LSRs), heat-cured elastomers (HCEs), bonding agents, and additives for transportation, consumer goods, healthcare and other industries. Our extensive material options offer resistance to moisture, chemicals, heat, aging, and microbial growth. We supply custom compounds that match our customers’ fabrication equipment, packaging and production needs; and we preform elastomers into most standard dimensions and shapes.
Momentive ceramics – both boron nitrides (BN) and pyrolytic graphite-based composites – are known for their flexibility in solving thermal management problems. They can increase the service life and reliability of devices featuring semiconductors, electrical insulation, heating elements, photovoltaic cells and more.
Momentive silicone-based coatings deliver superior protection to surfaces exposed to harsh weather, high temperatures and abrasive chemicals, such as automotive glazing and forward lighting. Our portfolio extends from hardcoats to weatherstrip, electrode and release coatings. Each line provides excellent thermal, chemical and abrasion resistance, as well as improved adhesion to an array of substrates.
Momentive silanes impart better scratch, mar and impact resistance and improved coefficient of friction to end-product surfaces. Moreover, they increase fabrication efficiencies for molded plastics makers, achieving higher extrusion rates, consistent mold fill, essential slip and antiblock properties, and lower power consumption in automotive, consumer electronics, and alternative-energy manufacturing applications.
