May 16, 2007
Date Announced: 16 May 2007 Cleveland, OH — Novagard Solutions, a leading manufacturer of advanced silicone-base sealants, adhesives and lubricants announces their patented, RTV 800 Series UV/Dual cure and RTV 800 Series UV Gels for use in various appliance and electrical applications.The RTV 800 Series UV/Dual (UV/Moisture) cure encapsulants and gasketing materials represent a break-through in UV/Dual cure silicone technology. Novagard Solutions has developed the product with cure speeds of less than three seconds, which exceed previously unobtainable levels.Brian Chambers, Director of Research and Development for Novagard Solutions stated: “This unique, patented chemistry allows paste products to cure up to 5/8” thick with minimal energy requirements. While this is dramatic in the lab, the onsite results with our customer evaluations also indicated significant time savings during actual production.” In addition, physical properties can be varied including the viscosity of encapsulants from a few hundred centipoises for spraying to several thousand for thick coating applications. Dual cure products offer assurance that shadow areas will fully cure. The product does not require sub-ambient storage.The Novagard Solutions 800 Series UV/Dual cure products are excellent for appliance and electrical applications where a seal is needed to dampen vibrations and/or seal out light or air. The 800 Series UV paste products can be foamed up to 1/4” thick (dependent on color of material) with curing times in seconds. The products are ideal for most exterior or interior gasketing applications with availability in Translucent and Black.Adding to their product lineup, Novagard Solutions offers the RTV Series UV Gels for encapsulating sensitive electronic components. This technology offers a UV cured silicone gel for fast and simple production processes. In the RTV 800 Series UV gels, Novagard Solutions offers two different products of varying hardness with excellent dielectric properties, potting up to ¼” in thickness and cure speeds of less than three seconds with minimal energy requirements. Both RTV 800 UV gel products are Clear and non-yellowing and the RTV 800-610 product is a 100% reactive system that will not leach silicone fluid.Novagard Solutions is a provider of customized manufacturing solutions of advanced silicone based sealants, adhesives, lubricants and PVC foams. They develop high quality engineered products for the automotive, construction, electronics, medical, general industrial and product assembly industries. For more information, visit the web site: .
