This HT-resistant silicone resin cures at room temperature

| By Chemical Engineering

Silkophen AC 950 is a new high-temperature (HT) resistant, high-solids silicone resin intended to provide protective properties in industrial applications. No toxic substances are released during curing, making application of the resin possible in enclosed spaces. Smoke formation and volatile-organic-compound (VOC) content are significantly lower than traEvonik WCditional bake-cure silicone resins, allowing Silkophen AC 950 to meet requirements for eco-friendly coatings systems. It cures at ambient temperatures, utilizing a catalyst, which provides additional advantages, says the company. The resin displays high and early resistance to aromatic and aliphatic solvents, in addition to impact resistance. — Evonik Resource Efficiency, Essen, Germany
