Adhesives for basic applications are usually based on acrylic or rubber technologies. These adhesives are cost effective but often fall short when exposed to extreme temperatures or harsh chemicals. Momentive's SilGrip™ pressure sensitive adhesives are designed to hold up in applications where other adhesives fail and should be used where high performance adhesion is critical. The silicone backbone of SilGrip™ adhesives allows for maintained flexibility and adhesion in even the most challenging environments.
SilGrip™ PSA529 & PSA6573A
Traditionally, Momentive’s PSA offering focused on pressure sensitive adhesives for the tape and label markets. Now, this same proven technology is available in a contact adhesive format. SilGrip™ PSA529 and PSA6573A offer outstanding adhesion to flexible and low energy substrates. These adhesives are chemically resistant and show minimal effects when exposed to extreme weather and large temperature changes that can commonly occur in aerospace and automotive applications. PSA529 and PSA6573 also offer superior electrical insulation and are used in cable wrap applications to shield wires and cables from electrically conductive environments. See the videos below for a more details about these adhesives and how to properly use them.
