Technical Information 1148: AEROSIL® R 104 and AEROSIL® R 106 for Silicone Rubber Applications  (pdf, 197 KB)

It provides an overview of the properties of the products AEROSIL® R 104 and AEROSIL® R 106 in comparison with other AEROSIL® grades.


Technical Information 1209: AEROSIL® R 8200 for Silicone Rubber  (pdf, 339 KB)

The Technical Information No. 1209 introduces AEROSIL® R 8200, a specially treated silica developed to improve silicone rubber compounding efficiency. In order to meet customer requirements, the silica has been modified by several treatment stages that follow production and hydrophobization steps. This product is characterized by a particularly low thickening effect, while at the same time retaining strong reinforcing properties.


Technical Information 1253: AEROSIL® and AEROXIDE® for Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR/LIMS)  (pdf, 382 KB)

The Technical Information No. 1253 describes in detail the properties of fumed AEROSIL® as well as the production of LSR systems and the requirements placed on the silica. Additional topics are the effects of different grades of hydrophobic AEROSIL® in an LSR formulation, effective heat stabilizers for LSR Formulations and an experimental section.


Technical Information 1374: Products for RTV-Silicone Sealants  (pdf, 620 KB)

It is well known that AEROSIL® fumed silica can fine-tune many properties of silicone sealant compounds. It can impart the required rheological and mechanical properties in RTV–1C silicone sealant compounds.
