The new Dow Corning EA-5151 is a quick in connect silicone adhesive that has been designed to successfully achieve instant green strength once it is dispensed. This neutral cure RTV adhesive offers primerless adhesion to most surfaces including metals and plastics and requires no solvents, or ovens. Dow Corning EA-5151 allows for high throughput assemblies, and for quality control, UV inspection of adhesive bead. This material’s intended use is for industrial and energy control units and automotive electronics. It can also be utilized in many components requiring gasketing, lid seal, attachment, adhesion or connector sealing. Such components consist of displays, sensors, battery packs, and much more.
The nonvolatile content of this Dow Corning Silicone Adhesive is >98.5% and the specific gravity is 1.1 uncured. The pot life of this material is 24 hours at 120°C, and the durometer – Shore A is 55-57 points. The tensile strength of EA-5151 is 4.5-4.7 MPa, and its elongation is >900%. This Dow Corning Silicone Adhesive is black in appearance and its service temperature range is -45 to 150°C. This product can be used with conventional heat assisted dispensing equipment. For further information on Dow Corning EA-5151, please contact a certified Krayden Technical Representative, or see the Dow Corning EA-5151 QiC Adhesive TDS.
Including interior electronics within automotives, Dow Corning EA-5151 works perfectly for many electronics applications:
- Display modules (entertainment, information, active safety systems, navigation)
- Seat electronics
- Battery pack or other modules that require oven-free cure
- Sensors (such as chemical, light, gas, electrical, camera)
- Advanced driver assistance system modules
Dow Corning EA-5151 QiC Adhesive is a pressure-sensitive, one-component, neutral moisture-cured silicone that is dispensed with heat assistance. This product offers an enhanced assembly process as parts prepared with EA-5151 can be handled instantly after its application. After it is cured, Dow Corning EA-5151 QiC Adhesive will soften when it is exposed to high temperatures, but will soon return to its original properties upon cooling. Before this adhesive is applied, the surface of the substrate should be clean and dry.
As it is moisture-cured, Dow Corning EA-5151 is not meant to be cured in areas confined entirely from atmospheric moisture. This material should not be used on wet surfaces, or on surfaces that may bleed solvents, plasticizers, or oils. Packaging availability of this product includes 22 kg pails and 304 mL aluminum cartridges. When it is kept at or below 32°C in its original unopened container, Dow Corning EA-5151 has a shelf life of 12 months from the date of production. The use by date can be located on the product packaging. This silicone adhesive is not tested or represented as suitable for pharmaceutical or medical uses.
