Dowsil Sylgard 527 is a two-part, 1 to 1 mix ratio silicone dielectric gel, designed for sealing and protecting electronic devices with delicate components. The product offers room temperature or heat-accelerated cure capabilities, providing flexibility in curing options. The heat cure option allows for increased processing speeds, making Sylgard 527 an ideal choice for efficient production processes.
One of the standout features of Sylgard 527 is its low viscosity, facilitating excellent flow under components during application. The product cures to an extremely soft material, combining the stress relief properties of a liquid with the dimensional stability of an elastomer. This allows Sylgard 527 to safeguard delicate components, providing the necessary protection against moisture, contaminants and stresses both thermal and mechanical.
