The Latest Generation of Liquid Silicone Rubber Delivers Excellent Properties fo …

Momentive Performance Materials announced the launch of a new product- family of liquid silicone rubber (LSR) that offers lowest compression set. Its first commercialized grade Silopren® LSR 3596/30 is self-lubricating with a nominal hardness of 30 Shore A. Based on new technology development, Momentive Performance Materials succeeded to get the compression set (22hrs at 175°C) without postcuring down to 10%, while maintaining the excellent mechanical properties of this LSR grade.

Momentive Performance Materials Introduces New Fluoro Silicone Rubber for Automo …

Momentive Performance Materials, introduced three new grades of fluorosilicone rubber, FQE205E, 206E and 207E. They are available in hardness 50, 60 and 70 Shore A, improving the compression set to 3-5% in comparison to the 20% of similar products. The three new FQE grades are designed to meet long-term reliability for automotive components performance under a harsh environment with high heat and chemical contact. These materials are ideal candidates for

Momentive Introduces Niax* Silicone Y-16045 for Rigid Polyurethane Foam

Momentive Performance Materials announced the introduction of Niax* silicone surfactant Y-16045, a non-hydrolyzable silicone copolymer that may be suitable for formulation into resin blends for the manufacture of rigid polyurethane foams. Niax silicone surfactant Y-16045 is an excellent candidate to consider for use in the manufacture of flexible metal-faced laminated boardstock, rigid metal-faced boardstock and bunstock blown with hydrocarbons due to its potential to substantially increase emulsion stability when the
