GE: Two-Component Adhesives
October 31, 2005
GE - Advanced Materials, Silicones has introduced a new family of two-component, room-temperature-cure adhesives that offer higher productivity in automated industrial assembly thanks to exceptionally fast cure times (as little as nine minutes to tack-free) and primerless adhesion to a variety of substrates. By accelerating cure rates and eliminating the need for a primer, GE's RTV200 adhesives enable higher throughput versus one-component systems. In comparison to addition-cure systems that require heating, the room-temperature curing offered by the new GE adhesives saves energy costs. Further, manufacturers can finely adjust cure speeds by choosing one of three B components and varying the A:B ratio of materials.
