Assembly, Adhering and Sealing
Reliable Foundation for Sub-Components and Larger Assemblies
Silicone adhesives and sealants from Dow Consumer Solutions enhance the ease, flexibility and speed of processing operations, reduce the cost of mechanical fastening, improve aesthetics and fill large gaps against vibration or moisture ingress. Our products encompass one-part moisture cure grades – for simple, cost-efficient room-temperature processing and one or two-part heat cure solutions that speed processing and help accelerate time to market. And, unlike competitive materials, our silicone formulations are often solventless, minimizing the need for special storage, handling or ventilation.
Our broad selection of silicone adhesives delivers excellent unprimed adhesion to a variety of common substrates including ceramics, reactive materials and filled plastics. As a class of materials, silicones are especially suited for high-brightness LED designs that require adhesives and sealants to maintain strong bonds at temperatures as high as 150°C. Silicone adhesives and sealants from Dow Consumer Solutions withstand temperatures ranging from -45°C to 200°C to ensure reliable performance over the expected 50,000 hours of an LED’s useful lifetime.
Silicone adhesives and sealants from Dow Consumer Solutions also deliver outstanding dielectric performance, as well as mechanical and stress dampening properties. Plus, select optical-grade adhesives offer new options for bonding LED lensing elements with little or no impact on clarity.
More than a world-class materials supplier, Dow Consumer Solutions is an expert and dedicated collaborator. If our Product Finder cannot identify an off-the shelf solution that meets your precise specifications, our expert application engineers will work with you to understand your application and identify how to best solve your needs.
