ELASTOSIL® N2197 is a one-part, nonslumping silicone sealant which cures to a permanently flexible silicone elastomer on exposure to moisture.
ELASTOSIL® N2197 is a ready-to-use, acid- and solvent-free, non-corrosive RTV-1 (room temperature vulcanizing, one-component) silicone rubber suitable for many applications. Excellent adhesion to plastics and metals in combination with a high elasticity and durability open up a wide range of potential uses for ELASTOSIL® N2197.
Seals made from ELASTOSIL® N2197 exhibit an outstanding resistance to weathering, ageing, moisture, and UV light. The fully cured rubber can withstand expansioncompression cycles for many years and is therefore especially well suited for joining materials with different coefficients of thermal expansion. The vulcanized silicone rubber permanently remains elastic over a wide temperature range from -50 °C to +180 °C (-58 °F to +356°F).
- neutral curing system (alkoxy)
- excellent unprimed adhesion to many plastic, metal, glass, and ceramic surfaces
- flame retardant: meets UL94 V-0
- general-purpose adhesive for technical applications
