Processing is particularly easy, since the product is delivered ready to use. Application can either be carried out manually or using robotized application equipment. CAF 17 E2 RED bead is applied to one of the two joint surfaces. Assembly must be carried out before the product has formed a skin.  It is recommended to apply CAF 17 E2 RED to clean and dry surfaces. 

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.


CAF 17 E2 RED is a one component silicone elastomer which cures at room temperature:

  • Acetic.
  • Non-flowing.
  • Adhesive.
  • Very good extrusion.
  • Red.



1 Part RTV Acetoxy


  • Quick curing.
  • Adhesion to many surfaces.
  • High elongation at break.
  • Resists water and humidity.
  • Good dielectric properties.


It is mainly attended for professional customers as a flexible bonding agent to provide sealing, bonding and protection, etc.
Its elongation/break properties allow it to absorb significant differential expansion movement.

  • Sealing & bonding in industrial sector.
  • Bonding of HCR silicones.
  • General servicing and maintenance applications in various sectors: automotive, chemicals, industry, etc.
