Industrialists in a wide range of industries – aeronautics & aerospace, automotive, railways, home appliances, solar energy and many others - need high-performance silicone solutions for assembly, sealing and bonding applications.
These products are often used in very demanding environments and must durably resist thermal and chemical aggression, while providing outstanding adhesion and mechanical performances.
The CAF® brand was created over 40 years ago and has become a benchmark in industrial RTV-1 (Room Temperature Vulcanizing-1) silicones, invented in our Saint Fons plant in France in 1957. This invention was followed by the creation of Accelerated RTV-1 technology in the 1970's, sold under the CAF® AXAD brand.
Over the years, we have established long-lasting partnerships with major industrial customers throughout the world. The CAF brand name is identified with demanding applications and outstanding quality standards (ISO 9001, PPAP approach, ISO EN 9100 for aeronautics & aerospace). It represents our sustained support, upstream and downstream, to provide advice and technical services to our customers.
CAF® and CAF® AXAD RTV-1 products provide industrial clients with all the features they need to ensure high quality assembly, sealing and bonding in their production processes:
Excellent mechanical properties
Resistance to very high temperatures
Excellent dielectric properties
Adhesion to a wide variety of surfaces
High resistance to chemicals and corrosive fluids
