Silicon-Based Block Co-Polymer*

Perfect for extreme demanding applications and environments.

Uses include, but are not limited to: industrial coatings and sealers, electrical wire insulation, medical devices, corrosion control applications, bridge pylons, rail tank cars, underground storage tanks, underwater tank and vessel leak repair and more!

This technology is a novel silicone-based polymer available in several formulations allowing it to be sprayed, poured, caulked, solid panels, foamed (both chemical and syntactic) and applied like a patching compound. It can be applied and cures underwater. Biocompatible. Specialty products include medical devices, coatings, sealants, fixatives, cabling insulation just to mention a few. Significant advantages of this polymer is its extreme radiation, weather and chemical resistance, robust mechanical properties, good flame resistance and thermal and chemical stability. When applied, the final form of the polymer is flexible and thus resistant to cracks, stresses and can be used on non-rigid surfaces in coating and encapsulating applications.

While many polymeric coatings are two part systems requiring mixing prior to application, this polymer is available as a one part direct use system. Other forms are available in two or three part systems. In three part systems, the third component is typically an accelerator, depending on application.

In coating form it can be sprayed using a standard airless sprayer to form 30 to 40 mils in a single pass. This then cures in several hours to form a rubber-like, solid coat. In this form it is a one-part material curing with moisture absorbed from the air. In very dry conditions and inside of containers moisture can be added to facilitate the cure.

Handling is simple and safe. The one-part product has a long shelf life. If the product is exposed to moisture during storage, it will eventually form a skin of cured material. This skin can be discarded and the material underneath the skin is of the original quality.

A key requirement for material application in certain states and at many regulated facilities is strict compliance with environmental regulations. This technology contains no solid hazardous ingredients that could become airborne and has a very low Volatile Organic Content (VOC), reported at 36 grams per liter (g/l), which is excellent and well below a typical maximum allowed of 350 g/l. No compliance issues with respect to air quality regulations should be expected.
