Sylgard 184 is a flowable, transparent encapsulant with good flame resistance. The silicone product is heat or room temperature cure and it offers good dielectric properties. It is well suited for LED Lighting Encapsulation, power supplies, connectors, sensors, industrial controls transformers, amplifiers and more. The transparent silicone allows for easy inspection of components.
Sylgard 184 Silicone Elastomer is a colorless, two component system. Viscosity of the mixed material is 3500 cP and the thermal conductivity is 0.27 W/m °K. Working time at 25° Celsius is approximately 1.5 hours and full cure will take 48 hours to achieve optimal performance. Heat cure time at 100° Celsius is 35 minutes, at 125° Celsius is 20 minutes and at 150° Celsius is 10 minutes. It has a Duometer of 43 and the Dielectric strength is 500 volts/mil. Sylgard is designed to cure into a flexible elastomer that is well suited for the protection of electronic applications.
There is no required post cure and the product can be placed in service immediately after room temperature or heat cure. Application methods include automated metered mixing and dispensing or manual mixing. In any applications that require adhesion, using a primer will be necessary. Certain materials, chemicals, curing agents and plasticizers can inhibit the curing process. Sylgard 184 should be operational over a temperature range of -45 to 200° Celsius for long periods of time. If the temperature reaches both the high and low ends of the spectrum, behavior of the silicone can become more complex and require additional testing and consideration. For more information, contact Krayden and a highly skilled technical representative will assist you with any questions that you may have.
To ensure safety and proper handling of the product, it is highly recommended to read and understand the Sylgard 184 MSDS. Multiple packing sizes are available for this material. It has not been deemed suitable nor tested for medical or pharmaceutical uses. Cure reaction will begin with the mixing process. Cure will become evident by a gradual increase in viscosity. When repairing, old silicone elastomers can be cut with a knife or blade. Sections of cured elastomers are removed best by mechanical action such as scraping or rubbing.
