Momentive Launches FRV138 Fluorosilicone Encapsulant to Protect Components from Shock, Heat and Chemicals

    WILTON, CONN., August 20 /CNW/ - Momentive Performance Materials today
announced the introduction of FRV138 two-component fluorosilicone encapsulant,
a single product that may help protect sensitive components from both
chemicals and mechanical stresses such as shock and heat.

    FRV138 encapsulant is a firm gel with a wide potential range of
applications in the automotive, aerospace and chemical industry, where
components need protection to withstand exposure to harsh environments such as
extreme heat, cold or mechanical shock. FRV138 fluorosilicone encapsulant
exhibits minimal absorption of fuels, oils, solvents or other chemical vapors
and liquids.

    "By developing a fluorosilicone encapsulant that offers both mechanical
and chemical protection, we are enhancing the production of electronics and
other sensitive components that can function better and longer in tough
operating situations," said Jim Papa, marketing manager.

    The consistency and excellent dispensing characteristics of FRV138
encapsulant make it an excellent candidate for protection of delicate parts in
applications where small or deep crevices must be filled. FRV138 encapsulant
is heat curable at 90(degree)C and retains its elastomeric properties in a
range of temperatures from -40(degree)C to 150(degree)C. The material can be
applied to many substrates without the use of a primer.
