NuSil Technology, a manufacturer of silicone-based materials for aerospace, aircraft, electronics and photonics industries, has announced the launch of an extension to its line of adhesives and sealants. R-3930 is a fluorosilicone, one-part silicone elastomer designed to cure under ambient conditions.

Tested alongside fuels such as JP8 and DiEGME, R-3930 is ideal for coating, sealing, and bonding applications requiring fuel or solvent resistance. This unique elastomer is a room-temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone elastomer dispersed in tertbutyl (T-butyl) acetate with a wide operating temperature range.

Intended for spraying and dip-casting, this material is designed for curing in thin elastomeric films. It is easy to work with in the field and to apply on large surfaces, and the cure time may be accelerated with the addition of heat. R-3930 bonds aggressively to most surfaces without the need for a primer, and is excellent for consideration as a coating to minimize ice adhesion.
