The SILASTIC SA 994X LSR series is a range of primerless, self-adhesive, general purpose, and self-lubricating, one-to-one mix ratio liquid silicone rubbers (LSRs) designed for two-component injection molding with thermoplastic substrates including, but not limited to, polybutylene terephthalate and polyamide.
Lightweighting of structures and combining of materials to take advantage of their best properties is becoming a part of engineering design, and adhesives will play an increasing role in those future designs and applications.
Lightweighting of structures is most often associated with automotive structures. However, lightweighting is a challenge across the transportation sector, including trucks, trailers, buses, passenger rail cars, and even heavy earth-moving equipment and cranes.
The wide use of dissimilar substrate materials driving the selection of sealants was reported in The Adhesive and Sealant Council’s “2017-2020 North American Market Report for Adhesives and Sealants with a Global Overview.”
