NuSil Technology Introduces an Optically Clear, High-Durometer Elastomer
Mar 8, 2012
NuSil Technology LLC (www.nusil.com), a leading formulator and manufacturer of silicone compounds for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, announces the release of MED-6219, an optically clear, high-durometer elastomer.
MED-6219 is designed to cure at a wide range of temperatures to accommodate users’ needs. With low viscosity, it is a naturally flowable and self-leveling material.
Due to its transparent appearance, MED-6219 can be used for potting and encapsulating electronic devices or for making molded parts. Because it can be vulcanized at both high and low temperatures, this elastomer is particularly suitable for temperature-sensitive substrates or for use in environments with fluctuating temperatures.
“MED-6219 suits a wide variety of healthcare applications because of its rheology, optical clarity, and adjustable cure schedule,” said Brian Reilly, Product Director – Healthcare Materials.
A Master Access File (MAF) will be filed with the FDA. MED-6219 can be purchased in dual-cartridge syringes to be mixed in a 1:1 ratio by weight.
