momentive-silicone-silanes-at-kshow Momentive Performance Materials will showcase a range of specialty silanes, new silicone technologies at K 2019, the industry’s largest trade fair for the global plastics and rubber industries.

Specialty Silanes for BOPP Films

Momentive’s specialty silanes offer key formulated solutions, including TOSPEARL 120 FL spherical beads, that can provide excellent thermal stability and low surface energy properties, making them excellent candidates to consider for use in BOPP films where slip and anti-block properties are required.

Used primarily with polycarbonate and acrylic resins, Momentive´s TSR 9000 spherical silicone beads are a versatile additive that can help improve optical diffusion of light. Additional benefits include heat stability and a low refractive index.

PEarlene SiPC MB01 - Silicone Gum Masterbatch

PEarlene SiPC MB01 is a silicone gum masterbatch, enhanced with a polycarbonate that is used in the extrusion of plastic copolymers and elastomer formulations. Overall, Momentive’s masterbatches offer improved processability, as well as scratch and mar resistance when used in the compounding or extrusion of certain plastics. Momentive’s specialty silanes continue to deliver innovative solutions; from crosslinking, adhesion promotion, coupling and dispersion.

Silicone Elastomer Solutions

At K 2019, Momentive will showcase its complete portfolio of Silopren liquid silicone rubber and other silicone elastomer solutions. The new self-bonding Silopren LSR 27x9 family addresses the rising demands for hard-soft designs, helps to achieve the bonding between silicone and thermoplastics, reduces assembly steps and meets various complex design requirements.

2-Momentive Butterfly Smartphone Holdercomponent Molding Cell

The highlight for our Silicone Elastomers business will be the first presentation of a 2-Momentive Butterfly Smartphone Holdercomponent molding cell to manufacture an innovative ‘butterfly’ smartphone-holder prototype. This cell will overmold a plastic frame, based on Covestro’s Apec® 1745 polycarbonate, directly in a second shot with the new Silopren LSR 2759 from Momentive. The result will be a smartphone-holder having excellent primer-less adhesion between the PC and Silicone rubber, and ready for attachment to a car´s ventilation flap. With a cycle time of only 40 seconds, visiting spectators can grab a part fresh from the machine.

The entire demo design, set up and implementation will be provided by Elmet, which also built the two-shot mold, automation and LSR dosing system TOP 5000 P. Setup will be implemented on a 2-component injection molding ‘SmartPower 120’ machine and robot from Wittmann-Battenfeld.

Momentive Butterfly Smartphone Holder in CarWith Momentive’s self-bonding LSR, multiple functionality enhancements can now be introduced to an array of new product designs. The new Silopren LSR 27x9 family from Momentive offers primer-less adhesion to many PC, PBT and copolyester substrates in commercial hard-soft combinations.

K 2019 will take place October 16-23 at Messe Duesseldorf, Duesseldorf, Germany. Attendees can visit Momentive´s coatings, elastomers and specialty silanes experts in Hall 6, booth B15 to discuss solutions to their design challenges.
