Buy Sylgard 182
Dow Corning Sylgard 182 is a silicone elastomer used in a variety of applications including general potting, industrial controls, power supplies, connectors, transformers, amplifies, high voltage resistor packs, on solar cells and circuits during processing. This high quality elastomer is transparent making it easy for board and part inspection while providing low stress and excellent flexibility. No exotherm during cure and there are no solvents or cure byproducts. The main purpose of this high quality material is for the protection of electrical/electronic applications.
Sylgard 182 silicone elastomer is supplied in two parts that are 10:1 ratio by weight or volume. The elastomer will have a working time of 8 hours at a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius. This innovative material will have a room temperature cure time of 336 hours. Heat curing at a temperature of 125 degrees Celsius will cut the time to approximately 30 minutes. Dow Corning silicone elastomers require no post cure and can be immediately put to service right away following the curing schedule. Cure reaction will begin with the mixing process. Curing will become evident by the increase of viscosity followed by gelation and conversion to a solid elastomer. Sylgard 182 is capable to be operational over long periods of time at temperatures between -45 to 200 degrees Celsius. Both the lower and higher temperatures of the spectrum with alter the performance and behavior of the material. The alteration may make the material more complex requiring further consideration.
It is extremely important to understand the limitation, proper storage and safe handling of Dow Corning Sylgard 182. If stored at a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius the shelf life will be 24 months. Special measures need to be taken to prevent moisture from contacting the material. Containers need to be tightly sealed minimizing the air space. Purging partially filled containers with dry air or other gases such as nitrogen is recommended. This material has not been tested nor represented as qualified for pharmaceutical or medical uses.
