Processing is particularly easy, since the products are delivered ready to use. Application can be carried out either manually or using robotic application equipment.
CAF 8 is applied to one of the two joint surfaces and assembled before the product has formed a skin.
It is recommended to apply CAF 8 to clean and dry surfaces.

SENSITIVE TO MOISTURE STORAGE +2°C Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground. Store in tightly closed original container. Store in a cool, dry place with adequate ventilation. Keep away from incompatible materials, open flames, and high temperatures. Avoid contact with oxidizing agents. Vulcanises at room temperature on contact with moisture in the air. For further information, refer to Section 10: "Stability and Reactivity". Suitable containers: Steel drums coated with epoxy-resin.Please consult the Safety Data Sheet of this product.ELV;GADSL;RoHS;WEEE


CAF 8 is a one component silicone elastomer which cures at room temperature:
- Acetic.
- Flowable.
- Red.

Adhesion;Gasketing;High Temperature Protection;Sealing

1 Part RTV Acetoxy



CAF 8 is quick curing, has good stability at high temperatures and good adhesion to many different surfaces at temperature and under conditions of humid heat.
CAF 8 therefore provides perfect assembly and complete sealing between different materials subject to thermal stresses.
CAF 8 also has good dielectric properties and is very resistant to chemical agents.

CAF 8 is mainly used in sealing and bonding applications for domestic appliances and industrial applications.
It is notably used for:
- sealing of steam chambers for electrical iron bases
- sealing of clad heating elements
- coating of conveyor belts
