This company has developed a line of UV-active silicone elastomers with a significantly enhanced property profile. Marketed under the trade name SEMICOSIL® UV, the new silicone grades cure at room temperature within a few minutes. The curing rate can be controlled by adjusting the UV dose as required. This enables manufacturers to encapsulate electronic components and PCBs faster and more economically. SEMICOSIL UV is particularly suitable for key future markets, from automotive and power electronics to sensor technology.

The novel UV-active silicone elastomers are easy-to-manage one- and two-component systems based on polyorganosiloxanes. The elastomers are characterized by a long shelf life, fast processing and the absence of any by-products on curing.
