Present in our everyday lives
For over 20 years, major appliance and consumer electronics manufacturers have been partnering with Elkem Silicones to make high-performance products using our wide range of silicones, from adhesives and sealants to silicone RTV-2 and cable insulation compounds. They know that our solutions are reliable, safe, and contribute to improving their manufacturing processes and cost-effectiveness. They also know they can count on our technical teams to give them the best advice and support at all times.
Elkem Silicones are part of our everyday lives. Appliances, from large-size appliances (such as ovens, cooktops, and washing machines) to small household devices (such as steam irons) all use silicone products. Here is a small sample of applications:
High temperature bonding and sealing using RTV-1 (CAF® Room Temperature Vulcanizing-1) and accelerated RTV-1 (CAF® AXAD) for high-temperature appliances that ensure safety, reliability and product life
Prototyping Bluesil® RTV-2 used at the design phase, as well as potting and encapsulation solutions for consumer electronics devices
High temperature sealing for electrical resistances, as well as silicone Bluesil® RTV-2 and Bluesil® rubber used in electric cables and Bluesil® rubber elastomers for heating elements.
