WACKER: Silicone Adhesive

June 21, 2010

This company has introduced SILPURAN® 2149 UV, an adhesive for wound care that cures to a soft, elastic adhesive material. The pourable, two-component, addition-curing system contains an ultraviolet (UV)-sensitive catalyst; irradiation with UV light converts this catalyst into its active form, at which time the crosslinking reaction begins. Curing time can be individually set by controlling the UV radiation dose and the process temperature.
