The WACKER portfolio comprises around 1,000 silicone rubber products. The choice of additives determines the properties of each product during processing and in the end material. The most important additives are crosslinkers, fillers and catalysts.
Unvulcanized silicone rubber consists of polymers of different chain length or polysiloxane chains. These polysiloxane chains always have a silicon-oxygen backbone. Two organic side-groups – usually methyl – are attached to each silicon atom. The polysiloxane chains determine the essential material properties possessed by all silicone rubbers. Examples are heat resistance and electrical characteristics.
WACKER offers a broad range of different types of silicone rubbers.. They are sold under the brand name ELASTOSIL®, POWERSIL®, SEMICOSIL®, SILPURAN®, WACKER® Silgel, LUMISIL®, CENUSIL® and SILMIX®.
