SCV-2586, a lightweight, thermally stable adhesive, provides Ultra Low OutgassingTM characteristics for Aerospace and Electronics applications

It is especially beneficial when these types of applications require Ultra Low OutgassingTM and minimal volatile condensables under extreme operating conditions.

NuSil Technology (http://www.nusil.com ), a cutting-edge manufacturer of silicone-based materials for aerospace, aircraft, electronics and photonics industries, recently added SCV-2586 to its line of Ultra Low Outgassing™ silicone materials. SCV-2586 is a lightweight adhesive for applications requiring thermal stability and a broad operating temperature range in which volatile condensables and outgassing are a concern.

SCV-2586 can be used as a bonding, sealing or potting material in space and electronic applications. It provides radiation resistance, low thermal conductivity, oxidation stability, thermal stability and good ablative characteristics. This elastomer far surpasses industry-standard ASTM E595, with a Total Mass Loss (TML) of <0.10% and <0.01% Collected Volatile Condensable Material (CVCM). With a specific gravity of 0.74, this lightweight material is excellent for flight applications in which weight is a concern and it features high adhesion with a primed lap shear strength of 175 psi.

“SCV-2586 is an excellent fit for solar cell boding to solar array panels in space applications or even terrestrial laser and photonic applications,” said Bill Riegler, product director – engineering materials at NuSil Technology, “It is especially beneficial when these types of applications require Ultra Low OutgassingTM and minimal volatile condensables under extreme operating conditions.”

With a work time of four hours, SCV-2586 offers the convenience of an extended work time, allowing materials to be processed over large surface areas. SCV-2586 is an addition-cure silicone that does not require moisture to cure and has minimal shrinkage and no by-products. Cure time can also be accelerated with heat.
