Dow one-part moisture cure adhesives such as DOWSIL™ 738 Electrical Sealantare generally cured at room temperature and in an environment of 30 to 80 percent relative humidity eliminating the need for curing ovens and the associated costs of energy and capital. Greater than 90 percent of full physical properties should be attained within 24 to 72 hours and varies according to product. Faster manufacturing throughput can be achieved since the adhesive and component can be handled in much shorter times of about 10 to 120 minutes, depending on the adhesive selected and the amount applied.
- Room temp cure
- High elongation for added stress relief
- No mixing required
- RT cure, no ovens required
- Faster in-line processing with optional heat acceleration
- Added reliability can result from lower cured stress
