This company has partnered with inpro Innovationsgesellschaft für fortgeschrittene Produktionssysteme in der Fahrzeugindustrie mbH to develop a silicone adhesive-sealant for mounting vehicle oil pans. Sold under the name ELASTOSIL® RT 779, the product can reportedly adhere to both aluminum and polyamide, allowing plastic oil pans to be mounted without mechanical fasteners. RT 779 offers good sealing properties and is highly resistant to oil, heat, and dynamic loads. The adhesive can be applied by machine and rapidly cures at room temperature.
